I guess you want to search for files in a folder. You could use GET_SEARCH_RESULTS instead, e.g.
No. I don't want to search for files in a folder, I want to search for the folder by the associated metadata fields.
The GET_SEARCH_RESULTS is used to search for files as you say...
And how did you manage to fill in custom metadata field value for a folder?
When I create a new folder, or try to update folder's metadata from GUI, all I see is: Folder Name, Folder, Owner, Security Group, Account, User Access List, Group Access List, Role Access List, Creator, Creation Date, Last Modifier, and Last Modified Date; these are also the fields available in FLD_FOLDER_SEARCH_FORM template, so I assume that no other metadata can be defined for a folder, or at least sought for.
When I update folders's metadata there are three options:
- Folder Information: In this option you can see the folder's metadata that you say in previous answer.
- Metadata values: In this option you can see the custom folder's metadata

Understood. Thank you for explanation.
I really think that the reason is that FLD_FOLDER_SEARCH is capable of running a query prepared within the FLD_FOLDER_SEARCH_FORM at the moment. The question is whether this is correct, or not. I'm afraid you will need to create a SR in Metalink and get the official answer. Btw. the folder metadata are stored in the table FrameworkFoldersMetaDefaults, not FolderFolders where the FLD_FOLDER_SEARCH searches for them.
OK. I'll tell you the result....
Thank you very much.
