I am looking for a way to index a network drive for the search pane interface in Word XP. I know that a client PC can index files, even on a server, using that Find Fast control panel app. What about a server solution? Ideally our Win 2000 server could index the files in the middle of the night.

Does MS provide support for this? Can I load the File Find indexer on the server and schedule it, rather than let it run whenever it feels like it? Is the solution so obvious that it hasn't even deserved discussion?

I did search this forum and find mention of Wilbur and Powerdesk. While those look like good products, the users in this particular office would find it much easier if they could just use the Search Pane built into Word. I can see using those products in other offices, though.

Thanks for the thoughts,
