I have need to search a number of Word and Excel files for specific words and phrases. I plan on using the Windows Search Assistant (the animated dog).
Problem #1: There are 150,000 files to deal with. Search as I might, I'm unable to find a statement on the number of files that a given search activity can display successfully. Any insight will be greatly appreciated.
Problem #2: There are pdf files that need to be searched also. Anyone aware of a utility which will work in the same manner on pdf files that have been created from Word or Excel? How about scanned images?
Thanks in advance.
