Tool to Search thousands of docx & xlsx files for a string of text
Posted on 2016-08-19
I recall in the older Win XP explorer, I could search in the contents of various files (.doc & .xls)
in a tree of folders for a particular string of text.
Can this still be done in Win 7 or any freeware tool to do this?
Win Explorer of Win 7 doesn't like it has this search function anymore.
At command prompt, if I use the ' find/Ii "string" *.docx ', it won't locate a string which
I'm sure is present in the .docx files though I could locate it if it is .rtf files
