Indexing Large Sets of Word Documents for Searches
Posted on 2013-12-09
I have been working to find a solution for a client that is currently using some very old Law software to maintain some of their older records. The program stores its information in a WordPerfect format that can be converted to a Microsoft Word format with some products I have come across. The plan is to convert these files into Word documents and index these files so that they can be easily searched for specific information.
The problem arises when trying to use Windows search to find entries in such a large group of text files. Searches often take a very long time, without reliable search hits (sometimes Search cannot find data that I know is there).
Does anyone know of any indexing services that can tackle this task, while returning fast and reliable search results? Any help would be appreciated.
