I'd suggest that each of your source document sections would be a distinct 
solr document. All of the sections could have a "source document ID" field 
to tie them together.

Dynamic fields work best when used in moderation. Your use case seems like 
an excessive use of dynamic fields.

Subject: dynamic field question

I am having trouble trying to return a particular dynamic field only instead 
of all dynamic fields.

Imagine I have a document with an unknown number of sections.  Each section 
can have a 'title' and a 'body'

I have each section title and body as dynamic fields such as section_title_* 
and section_body_*

Imagine that some documents contain a section that has a title="Appendix"

I want a query that will find all docs with that section and return just the 
Appendix section.

I don't know how to return just that one section though

I can copyField my dynamic field section_title_* into a static field called 
section_titles and query that for docs that contain the Appendix

But I don't know how to only return that one dynamic field


Any ideas?   I can't seem to put a conditional in the fl parameter
