Since you can only query on full text and with the condition "contains" I really dont see that to be possible. You can't sort on description either I believe.

What I would suggest is this:
1) make sure the description field is mandatory on certain states (you can do this on the operational behavior in the process configuration

2) to find all work items that are currently missing the description you can either query all workitems and export to csv.

3) If this doesn't work for you I would submit a workitem requestion a feature for searching for empty fields.

Hi Kim

Thanks. I did think of the above responses but looks like it may not work.

We have recently moved away from CSV file usage and since there are around 1000 Work Item's querying on it and checking manually will be bit of tedious task.

Anyway looks like it may not be possible. Thanks a lot.
