Where is the value of a scripted field stored

We would like to create a query on the database involving the customfieldvalue of a scripted field, but apparently it is not stored there.

Where should we find it (if at all persisted)

I seem to remember that scripted fields store their results data in the index. (I know that's how derived fields do it, but I could be wrong about scripted fields and they build it on-the-fly whenever it's needed)

I'm afraid that if you're reporting off the database, then the only real answer is to duplicate the work the scripted field does in your reporting.

Yep... if you need a second opinion, Nic is correct. Scripted fields extend Calculated Fields, which have no value in the database.

You can export all to excel and do your aggregate calculation in that, or write a raw lucene query and do some calculation on those results...
