Full text search in a Word document

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


  I´m currently programming a web search application in ASP.Net and having problem with full text searching. My requirements are:

1. Save a byte array from SQL server to word document as a temp file in a server side?

2. How to highlight the string I am currently searching in the Word document and return to the user the sentence with the highlighted string (like on Bing or any other search engines)? Is it possible to fullfill this requirement with full-text search integrated in SQL Server 2008?

Thanks in advance,

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

I'm facing an issue with the indexing.

I have 1 WFE+Index server+DB server.

Index server is not installed with MS FIlter pack 1.0

When crawling, the there will be document with warning in crawl log:
The file reached the maximum download limit. Check that the full text of the document can be meaningfully crawled.

Documents that with warning are such as doc, ppt, xls, docs, ppts and many others.
However, I view into the successful crawled document, there are doucments with ext doc and ppt.

For large file index, there are MaxGrowthFactor + MaxDownLoadSize required to be added into the index server.

As my understanding is, MS Filter Pack should installed into index server(already did, correct me if i'm wrong).

I looked into the Office SharePoint Seach(CA>Services in farm), if the server is appointed to "Use this server as indexing server", then MS Filter Pack is suppose to be installed into that particular server as well.

At the bottom, there also has another option is "Use all web front end for crawling".

The question here is, IF the option "Use all web front end for crawling" is selected.
Does the WED FRONT END Server required to installed the Ms Filte

Replace text in a word document stored in a Document Library


Hi to all,

im tying to replace some text introduced in a word document stored in a document library.

Exactly i need a web part with a button that change a key in a word template <list> (for example) and replace <list> with a text in another list.


I think that it would works with the Microsoft.Office.Word.Interop; namespace but when i call the function :

wDoc = wordApp.Documents.Open(ref fileName, ref missing,
                                ref readOnly, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
                                ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,

full-text search error


I have created procedure for full-text search and it works in SQL Management Studio 2008 (SQL Server 2008 Express) but in Visual Studio 2010 not - I have error:

Full-Text Search is not installed, or a full-text component cannot be loaded.

I have read somewhere that only admin can use full-text indexes - so how I can use full-text search in VS2010 ?

Replace Text in textbox in word document using interop and asp.net

Insert html formatted text into word document asp.net(C#)

HI,I am creating an ms-word document from server side using a template. Here i add the reference Microsoft word 11.0 object library. Here i use a template where i set some bookmarks. Now i need to populate those bookmarks.Everything goes fine but i am stuck in one place where i need to write html text exceptnormal text. My code sample is as follows:            object TemplatefileName = Server.MapPath("Template") + "\\High.doc";            object novalue = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;            Word.Table oTable;             Word.ApplicationClass objWord = new Word.ApplicationClass();            Word.Document objWordDoc = objWord.Documents.Add(ref TemplatefileName, ref novalue, ref novalue, ref novalue);            objWordDoc.Activate();            objWordDoc.Application.Visible = true;   objWordDoc.Bookmarks.get_Item(ref prj_name).Range.Text = dProject.Rows[0]["txtProject"].ToString();Here its a complex report.

Full Text Search architecture needs to be enhanced for true multilingual web applications

This is for the MS SQL Server development team that handles the code for Full Text Search. Hopefully you will read this. I developed a web application that supports multilingual content. As is typical in the real world, many people often need to create their content in multiple languages or even have multiple languages present within the same content. In my SQL Server database I have a single table that is used to store all the text from all languages. A single column is used to store this text. A separate column is used to identify the language of the content and uses Culture Codes like en-us, de-de, etc.. Furthermore, the format of the content could be plain text, html or whatever. Business logic at a higher level in my application code knows what the format is for each record because data is retrieved within the context of whatever a web page uses. For example, a user sending an e-mail would use plain text for the subject. For the body, html would be used. When these two pieces of information are stored in the same table, my code knows upon retrieving it what is text and what is html. It makes no sense storing a subject and body of an email in two separate tables. This is just a simple example but hopefully you get the point. After going through the documentation on FTS, it became clear to me that my table design is completely incompatible with the FTS paradigm. FTS requ

Multiline text field in document library and item update from Word trouble

Hi I have faced a bit of odd problem. Here is the scenario: I have document library with text columns (multiple lines of text) that are set to unlimited length. I have a workflow that runs with Word documents (.docx) that stores information in XML to this field. Everything works perfectly until document is edited in Word and saved back to document library. After Word saves my document in document library, the multiline text field is "cutted", only 7 rows of text is saved to my field. I have tried hiding my text field, making it sealed or readonly, but still Word breaks my field. Funniest thing is that when editing document in Word, this field should not have any changes (meaning that I dont show my "long text field" in document information panel back in Word). I have tried also creating event handler to handle itemupdating event in document library where I switch spweb.parserenabled property to false and in itemupdated event I switch it back on. Also I have tried to remove all line changes from XML with no luck. This XML saving to long text field works perfectly with many other places but in this one environment this does not seem to work :( I am looking forward to any suggestions what to try next. I have been wondering about using the eventhandlers and trying to "protect" my text field with some logic but that is still just a thought.   T

Full text search not working for pre-existing data on table after installing docx filter.However wor


Hello All,


I have a strange issue. I have pre-existing data in my table with full text index defined along with catalog. I noticed that I did not have the docx filter ,so I installed the filter and performed the steps below. After installing the filter  I added a couple of new records. I noticed that the full text search pulled up the new records matching the criteria but did not return any pre-existing records. Could you please let me know the issue.Please note – currently I am using sql 2008 , but also would like to verify the same in sql 2005 as well.

Also could you please verify the steps below for installation in sql 2008 and sql 2005 and with different architectures (Eg windows 2003/2008, 32bit, 64 bit etc)


This was tested on VM image on 64 bit architecture Windows 200

Put text from textbox into a word document


I have a form with a few textboxes on it and a button to make a .doc file and I am a bit lost. I'm not sure what would be the best approach for what I want to do. When I click the button, I want the data in the textboxes put into a word file in two columns.

Here is the code I have so far:

#pragma once

namespace testForm {

	using namespace System;
	using namespace System::ComponentModel;
	using namespace System::Collections;
	using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
	using namespace System::Data;
	using namespace System::Drawing;

Full text search missing from one instance on one node of 3 node MSSQL 2008 cluster


Hello to all, 

I just started at a new client and on becoming familiar with the environment, I noticed that one of our instances on one node is missing the full text search option. The instance is not active on this node but I fear that if we ever need to failover it wont work.

The full text option is installed on the active node instance and the other passive node.

How do I add the full text search option to the instance on the node thats missing it ?

thank you.
