Anyone know of an IFilter for PDF files that works on SharePoint 2003? I
searched on the Adobe site and I could only find IFilter5 for SharePoint

The ifiler tool is a tool from Adobe which allows Sharepoint to index and Search
PDF documents.

Please see attached document and have a look to that URL:

Thanks for the info. I followed all of the steps and .pdf files  are still
not showing up in search results.

We have a number of HowTo documents that are PDFs. I can see them in the
libraries but they are not returned after searching. ??

By default pdf  files are not included in searching and indexing. You
need to do the following:

1. Go into Site Settings.
2. Under the Search Settings and Indexed Content section, select
Configure search and indexing.
3. Under the General Content Settings and Indexing Status section,
select Include file types.
4. You will see by default, pdf is not included in this list. Click the
New File Type link.
5. Type in the file extension and click the OK button.

Thanks, I went back and reread the MS article and found I had skipped that
