Is it possible to use searchRecords to search a subform on a module?

I am trying to use .searchRecords to access a field in a subform on a module.

The name of the custom module I'm searching is "Residual_Purchases" and the subform APi name is "Affected_Accounts".  I've tried using both the API name of the subform, and the API name of the field in the subform I am trying to match up as well, both return the same error (attached screenshot.)

Has anyone had success using .searchRecords to search a field on a subform within a module?

Here's the code I've tried, as well as a screenshot of the API names of the subform and subform fields.

  1. // Get Residual (custom module) record
    resid = zoho.crm.getRecordById("Residuals",residId);

    // Get Account Name from Related Account field
    accountName = resid.get("Related_Account");

    // Search Residual Purchase (custom module) records for accountName under Affected Accounts subform
    ser = zoho.crm.searchRecords("Residual_Purchases", "name" = accountName);

    // Return search results
    info "Search Results: " + ser;

  1. // Get Residual (custom module) record
    resid = zoho.crm.getRecordById("Residuals",residId);

    // Get Account Name from Related Account field
    accountName = resid.get("Related_Account");

    // Search Residual Purchase (custom module) records for accountName under Affected Accounts subform
    ser = zoho.crm.searchRecords("Residual_Purchases", "Affected_Accounts" = accountName);

    // Return search results
    info "Search Results: " + ser;
