Use "_fnct_search" to serve the purpose...

Refer this: Functional Fields

Hi Deep, Can you give me any other way to do this ? this is the common way and I know this way. I wan to achieve it another way.

Ya another alternate way is there, perform the search case in the orm method "search".... Either way you got to search explicity only, since the funcional fields' value will not be saved to database, thus normal search cannot be performed on non-database-fields...
