One year ago @t31os answered a post with a code I can't access: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/search-custom-field-data

His answer... I was feeling adventurous, so i wrote a simple plugin to do it.. http://wordpress.pastebin.ca/1736605

The post search in the admin will now also check against the meta keys and meta values when checking for matching posts... ;)

Is there a way to get that code so I can use it?

Thank you very much

how to filter post listing (in WP dashboard posts listing) using a custom field (search functionality) ?

Its just what you are looking for.
