Search using Version Free Variables

I've created new file cards with version free variables on them to help us search our part/assembly library. We've now populated some of the model cards. When I search our data cards using one of the version free variables (Pump Series in this example) I get the list of models I'm expecting.

However, when I perform the same search using the data card fields it comes up completely empty. I've tried this with numerous variables with the same result each time (variable tab works, card tab does not).

To make this a useful tool I need to be able to configure search cards for our users. Has anyone run into this before and is there a simple fix that I'm missing? The variables were inputed from drop down lists (to avoid typos). The data is obviously being stored as I can search effectively with the Variable tab.
