In Front Page 98 I have an Active Element Search Form (MS template).  In the properties of the Search form I need to set the search specifically for a directory.  What is the syntax for the Directory?

In the Word List to Search field on the Search Results tab, you can indicate that the entire FrontPage web should be searched for the word or that a single directory should be searched.

Specify a single directory, such as _internet to limit the search to that directory.

neither.  It can only search directories that are WITHIN THE WEB.  It cannot search outside the web structure.

If you had to specify something that wasn't in the root level of the web, you could try directory/subdirectory as the synatax.  The search automatically looks to the root directories of the web and starts there.  If you specify ALL, it then looks at all sub directories.

I've tried to type in folders that are within the web but I get no results.

If I put the entire web I get files returned from outside of the web that are on the computer itself.
