    Locate all target documents? (WD97/SR-2)

    We are setting up one source document which can be used through INCLUDETEXT in a number of target documents. Before changing the text in the source document, we want to be able to see which target documents reference the source document. Any ideas as to how this can be done?

    Thanks,

    Assuming this is a one-time operation and you do not need an automated solution... Use Windows' Find Files and search your .doc files for a text string matching the file name listed in your IncludeText fields. This is not very efficient, so if you need to check tens of thousands of files, it probably wouldn't be the bet way...
