Why does an asset search not find hosts that are not in an asset group

Qualys Guard Express Suite - Vulnerability Management.  When I perform a search under Assets > Asset Search, whether I use IP ranges and select all of my IP addresses/ranges or whether I choose to search via Asset Groups by inserting the word ALL in the Asset Group field, the search only returns assets if they are in some kind of asset group.  I don't enter any criteria in any other field.  I simply want the application to show me all of my hosts assets, yet it doesn't.  To test this, I have one host asset that is not a member of an asset group and that IP is not returned in the report.  How can I perform an asset search and ensure that Qualys is showing me 100% of hosts assets I have, regardless of whether they're in an asset group or not?
