In my ASP.net application I have used index server utility to search specific text from word/text files.
For this functionality I have used index server and configured folder. After implementation of this program this was running fine but after some time user reported they can not find keyword "C#" or any word with "#". I think I should share my experience and solution with other developer who may also faced or facing this issue.
Use the following code and it will work.
"Desc" is the text box name and searchstr is the search string paased to index server to search from files.
searchStr = "C#"
searchStr = Desc.Text.ToLower()
