Searching document in the db

I have an Acess database that stores Word docs files.
Is there a way (ASP) to perform a search on the docs in the database?

How about this:

Create another memo field. Use it to store an Text or HTML version of your Word document. Update the field every time the the document is updated. This will you can search this field instead.

Now, you'll need some way to get the text out of all the .docs. You can do this manually or use MS Word automation or a library like wvWare :     

Windows version:

Basically, you'll need a script to loop thru all records, read the word doc, convert it to text, and then update the text field with it.
