Subject Re: Difference between currency fieldType and float fieldType
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2016 07:23:26 GMT
But if I index $1234.56 as "123456", won't it affect the search or facet if
I do a query directly to Solr?

Say if I search for index with amount that is lesser that $2000, it will
not match, unless when we do the search, we have to pass "200000" to Solr?

Regards,
Edwin
