Subject RE: Search for a term in all fields

Well, here's my current thoughts on acheiveing this.  Instead of putting
a 1000 space gap between elements of the 1ll field could I not use a
character that isn't used in the data such as ~ and then somehow (don't
know how) use that to search all fields?

The information Erick gave you when you asked this question yesterday is
all very accurate -- the one addition i would make is that you don't
need SpanNear queries to take advantage of positionINcrimentGap --
PhraseQueries do that to.

Consolidating your fields into a single "all" field, or constructing a
BoolenQuery across all of your existing fields are really the two main
options -- each with their tradeoffs.
