Subject Re: Showing distance in results

Did you just try just setting up the demo then trying the example? I often
find if I advance step-by-step from the example, it is much easier
to figure things out.

sfield is the name of the field containing the location information,
"store" in the examples
Both "store", and "pt" are required to be defined by the geodist() function.

dist() is a different function query with its own syntax. If you use
geodist(), you must
define pt and sfield.
