Indexing Protected Excel Spreadsheets

  Asked By: Kristine    Date: Jan 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2425

I have had this problem for a while and only just figured out the
common element between some excel documents sitting on our SPS 1.0
install. They all refuse to index, with the following error:

Error fetching URL, (80042403 - Failed to load document into IFilter.
Possibly caused by bad document or bad IFilter. )

The common element only became apparent when more and more people
started publishing PROTECTED worksheets. It seems like any documents
within SPS refuses to be indexed if there is a password protecting it.

I have confirmed this by unprotecting one of the sheets and
republishing it, it indexed perfectly.

What I need to know is how I can make SPS index the documents while
they are still protected, unprotecting all the sheets isn't really a
viable option.

Can anyone help please?
