Woops, sorry about that! I'd just quickly tested the script with a single-column document, but multi-column documents had a few more references to "type of [column]" which needed to change to "column type of [column]".

I've edited my post above to include these fixes.
Man, we get good service around here. Thanks for the fast scripting, Ken.

The only thing I'd need to make this filtering script really valuable to me is if it kept parent items with the search results. Without parent items, context is lost, and the results are sometimes meaningless.

I'm not a scripter, so I don't even know if that's possible ... is it?
I'm using OO 4.0.4 and now this script doesn't work as it once did. It used to highlight every row that had the search string.

Now - unless I'm doing something wrong - it simply collapses Top Level items that do not have the search string in it, or in any of its children.

In other words, if I have an outline of 1, 1A, 1B, 1C, 2, 2A, 2B, and 2C .... and the search string is in 2B, the script will collapse 1 and leave all the rows under 2 expanded. And the row with the search string is not highlighted.

Any way to edit this script to get back to the "highlight all the found rows" functionality?
