Searching docs programmatically

  Asked By: Siddhi    Date: Aug 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 666

I have written code for searching docs from workspace programmatically. But it
gives only worddocs ppts not showing pdfs in results. I have pdfs too in my
document library how to get pdfs in search results.

Do you have the PDF iFilter installed? Without it, MSSearch can't index
the text in the PDFs.

Answer #2    Answered By: Rebecca Lewis     Answered On: Aug 11

You need to download, install the PDF Ifilter from Adobe Web Site. Once
installed, force a full re-indexation and PDf will appear in the search

Also ensure your PDFs are searchable PDFs. If not, the IFilter will not look
like it is working.

What's a searchable PDF? I didn't realise there was a difference. This
matter quite a lot to me.

Search the Adobe Website...

Directly at www.Adobe.com (search for ifilter)
Read the installation instructions carefully (before installing)

The security settings effect a PDFs searchability. When you save a PDF, you have
the option for whether or not the text is "selectable". If you choose "Never
allow text to be selectable" the text also becomes unable to be indexed.
