Is there an easy way to build a Search on a Data Object that has say, 3 or 4 fields, but one of the fields is Location. This location field can be either a Zip Code, Street Address, City, or State.

In other words, is there an easy way to enable one field of a search form to search more than one field in the database/dataobject. I used the getCustomSearchContext() function in the object.
