including parent folder metadata in a search

Question asked by ebremer on Nov 12, 2009
Hi, I have metadata associated with folders in RM.  Simply, I use a folder as a personnel folder and add custom metadata to each folder [Last Name, First Name, Department, and rank (faculty or staff)].  I then want to upload a variety of documents that i add a single piece of metadata call "document type" which has values like ("CV","Dean's Letter", "evaluation","etc").  So far this all works fine. What I would like to know is how I can do a search (given the above arrangement) like this:

select all documents/records of with custom metadata element "document type" set to "cv" and that are contained within folders that have the custom metadata element Department set to "Finance".

Is this possible?  Thanks, Erich
