I have created a property_id reference number (i.e. land005) field for each property as I do not want to use the listingID.

On the search_page_default.html how can I hard code a text box search so that when the reference number (i.e. land005) is keyed in and submited it will go directly to the listing_detail_default.html for that particular property.

If the reference number does not exist then it should come up with
the standard message 'Perhaps you were looking for something else'.

PBFLASH advised me that

"It will not work with another field name as the listing view page only works with the listingID. You would need to create a script to lookup the listingID based on the value entered and then redirecting to the listing view using the listingID."

Any help would be greatly appreciated creating this script!

Best regards
