Can you provide a list of some of the features for which you are looking?
Is this to be a hard copy (printout) or a disk-based search?

We have a storage area with 10,000+ documents including DOC,PDF, XLS, Wordperfect.  We need to index all of these documents including the body of each document and then have the capability of searching for keywords in these documents.

Check out SearchSimon.  http://www.simongibson.com/intranet/indxscpt/

It's low cost, especially if you already have the Windows environment.  You enable the built-in indexing server, setup SearchSimon on IIS and install the WordPerfect IFilter.  Your users have a web page front end for searching, and the results are limited based on Active Directory permissions.
