Full Text Search

Indexing attempts to index all words associated with all documents loaded into the Document Library. From our experience the application will now index over 130 different document types as long as they are not password protected, images, or corrupted in any way. Once the documents are indexed they become searchable through the Full Text search.  The Full Text Search function can be accessed by setting the search criteria to Full Text in Advanced Search or when searching on a specific folder.

The search can use words, phrases, or strings of characters surrounded by a wildcard like *. Common words such as a, the, if & and are ignored.  Strings of characters that are only 2 characters are also not indexed.  Search will retreive documents fastest when searches are based upon full words.
