    search for more than one word in a document (Word 2000)

    Is there a way to search all files and folders for more than one word in a document? For example, if I know the words Marion and Indiana are in a document ( words are not together), is there a way to find that document? Thanks

    You can specify multiple search criteria in the Search option that is available in the File | Open dialog (through Tools).

    Each version of Word since 97 has included some kind of File Search component. In Word 2002, it is access through a little Tools drop-down menu inside the File Open dialog. As illustrated in the attached, you can combine words to find in the document text. (However, I didn't actually test it because these searches tend to take a long time to run. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> ) Does it work for you?

    Thanks to you both. That is exactly what I needed. I ran a search and found what I needed pretty quickly, but searched just one folder!
