Excluding documents from search

  Asked By: Rocco    Date: Jun 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1300

Our search was working awhile back, but we had to rebuild it. I'm
trying to create an source that excludes all .docs, .xls, etc from a
search. The documentation to do this is below.

• "*/*.doc" applies to every Microsoft Office Word document encountered

However, when I add this (exclude/include content), it adds two entries
to the form. it adds "*" (include) and then "http://*/*.doc" below it.
It doesn't seem to work. .docs are still being returned. I also
tried ".doc" but that didn't do it either. Also, which way does the
list filter? Should I move ".doc" above or below the listing
for "http://mydomain"?

I had it all working and documented months ago, but now it appears my
documentation was lacking on this topic.
