# Searching in grid listings fail sometimes if using formula fields

In some cases if using formula fields (especially as labels) the search fails.
Workaround can be to define the datamanagerSearchFields annotation and explicitely define the search fields, including a formula label field (which works fine).
However it fails if defining an FK property (which itself has a formula label on it) and not explicitely defining the label.

If fk_name.label is a formula field then:
fk_name.label defined in datamanagerSearchFields works where as
fk_name defined in datamanagerSearchFields does not.

Ideally it would not be required to define the formula fields at all and it would work out-of-the-box.
