How do I search a Contact picklist?

Hi. I've added a customer field "Category" to our contacts (eg. Journalist, Investor, etc).


Then I've tried Search and Advance Search, but it appears that picklists aren't indexed. I read in a post here from 2007 that there are work-arounds, but my question are... has this been fixed since 2007, or will i still need to create a work-around? And, if a work-around is required, advice, please.





its true, advanced search isn't that advanced.


the work-arounds would be:

- search using a view

- use the normal search then add filters

- create hidden text fields and write triggers to copy the picklist value to the hidden text field (all custom text fields are included in advanced search only)
