Ferret not returning the right results

I have ferret setup in my model with multiple fields, but when I do a
search on the value that might be stored in two fields, I get no
results.

Here’s an example:

“Jim 12333”

Where Jim is a name field, and 12333 is a zip code. I have this in my
model:

acts_as_ferret :fields => [ ‘name’, ‘zip’ ]

I’m not sure what’s up. Any help is appreciated.

If I just search for Jim, or just 12333 it comes up. Is there a way to
search like this?

Thanks.

query terms are ANDed by default in acts_as_ferret. Does “Jim OR 12333”
work ?

acts_as_ferret(
:fields => [ ‘name’, ‘zip’ ],
:occur_default => Ferret::Search::BooleanClause::Occur::SHOULD
)
