Sharepoint 2007 Document Search and Highlight in Office 2007 and PDF


We will be implementing Document Search (DOC, DOCX, PDF, TIFF, PPT, PPTX, XLS, XLSX) for one of our customers. We were evaluating a few MOSS 2007 based solutions, and happened to visit your site.  What we intend to achieve are the following functionalities:


a.       User should be able to search through 1000s of documents which are in a Sharepoint Document Library

b.      The documents could be in English, International Languages.

c.       Each document is 70-100 pages, and therefore it is important that the Search Results show the relevant pages on which the Search Text appears (Get Highlighted) within each document . Clicking on the link will take the user to the right page.

d.      The additional requirement is Synonym search. So, I can search for

problem rename sharepoint 2010 search service application admin database

Hi all, i have a problem that hopefully someone has an answer to.  i am not too familiar with sharepoint so please excuse my ignorance. we have sharepoint 2010 on a windows 2008r2 server.  everything seems to work fine.  but as you know, the default database names are horrendous.  i have managed to rename all of them, except for the "search service application" admin database. the default is: Search_Service_Application_DB_<guid> the other 2 databases (crawl and property) were renamed without a problem. we are following the article from technet on how to rename the search service admin db (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-nz/library/ff851878%28en-us%29.aspx).  it says to enter the following command: $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -DatabaseName "new database name" -DatabaseServer "dbserver" however, i get an error about identity being null.  no big deal, i add the -Identity switch and the name of my search service application.  but the real problem comes the error it throws:   Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication : The requested database move was aborted as the associated search application is not paused. At line:1 char:54 + $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication <<<<  -Identity "Search Service Application" -DatabaseName "ShareP

Sharepoint check-out document cross reference problem

Hi I have a problem with check-outed word document from Sharepoint Services 3.0. After I check-out document from Sharepoint, cross references in Word document stop working. After I click to cross reference (Ctrl+Click to follow link), Word show me warning message: "Some files can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer...Would you like to open this file".

I tried this on two Sharepoints and two client computers, but it is the same. I tried http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb%3Ben-us%3B925757&x=8&y=9 , but did not help. How can I disable this behavior? Thanks

Problem With SharePoint Designer 2010 and the Search.asmx Web Service

I've created a web service datasource on a 2010 site using SharePoint Designer. When I try to make use of the datasource on a page I get the "The server returned a non-specific error when trying to get data from the data source..." message. The datasource connects to _vti_bin/search.asmx. I am using the QueryServiceSoap port and operation QueryX.

Sharepoint 2010 Fast Search - Searching Document set

We have a sharepoint 2010 Fast server. We are planning to use document sets to store documents with common metadata.(Previously were using zips in moss 2007). Now, the requirement is we need to return only  document sets even if the search results contain multiple documents within that document set. ie, if we searched for a keyword that was specific to a document within the document set, the search results should return the document set and not the individual documents. Please help!!! Thanks in advance

SharePoint 2010 Document Center and Search Errors



I have created a new site collection based on the Document Center template and it was created properly. However, im getting couple of errors , such as:

Error 1: When I click on the Document ID settings (Site Settings--> Site Actions--> Site Collection Administration--> Document ID Settings) I get the following error msg:  An unxpected error has occured.

Error 2: After uploading a document into the Document Center, trying to search for that documnent (by the Document ID) using the search at the root site of the document center, I get the following error msg:

Could not look up Docment ID "xxxxxxxxxx" due to an error encountered in Microsoft Search Server,

Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

I have check all the services required for the Document Center including the Search Service and everything seems to be working properly.

I also traced the error (Error 2)exc in the logs through the Correlation ID, and this was the exception (Level: High):

Search Problem with SharePoint Foundation on SBS 08


I upgraded to Sharepoint foundation 2010 on my SBS 2008 server that I just set up, and followed the instructions in this whitepaper: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff959273%28WS.10%29.aspx

I followed this guide to the letter, and cannot get the search working for my sharepoint site.  When I first tried it, it errored out with the following message:


Your search cannot be completed because this site is not assigned to an indexer. Contact your administrator for more information.


Googling that provided a solution, to go into central admin, manage content databases, ShareWebDB and select a search server, which there is only one choice (which is the name of the server).

That seemed to make the search work, but it can't ever find anything, even stuff I know is there.  I went and looked in the event viewer, and found this:

Unable to perform fulltext search for documents in some folders in an SharePoint Document Library


Issue Description : Keywords from certain folders in the Document Library  is not searchable via full text search. For example, the keyword “4MB7106” is not searchable, even though the document is available in the document library. This is content search in a file in a document library, NOT a file name. Any ideas?

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service.
