ScriptedField returns number but can't query like it is a number

I have the following code in a scripted field:

def int days
	def now = new Date()
		// get values of Created Date Information
		def Timestamp createdDate = issue.getCreated()		//TimeStamp
		def Timestamp resolutionDate = issue.resolutionDate	//TimeStamp
		//elapsed time
		def elapseTimeInMillis
		if (resolutionDate){
                	elapseTimeInMillis = resolutionDate.getTime() - createdDate.getTime()
		} else {
			elapseTimeInMillis = now.getTime() -createdDate.getTime() 
		if(elapseTimeInMillis)	{
			def hours = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.toHours(elapseTimeInMillis)
			days = hours / 24
			def daysHours = hours - (days*24)
} catch (Exception e) {
	log.error "ERROR $e"
	0 as Double
days ? days as Double : 0 as Double

It is set up with a number template and a number searcher. When I display the column in a search, it displays numbers as expected. However, If I want to query the items that are greater than 2, I get no results. If I try querying using the field at all in the search, I get no results.

Here is my JQL from issue navigator: project = "CAT Group Policy Services" and "Age Since Received Number" >2

How can search on this numeric field?

Did you reindex after you implemented the scripted field? Otherwise only changed issues get the correct value.

That was it - thanks, sometimes I forget the simplest things.
