Search for Office 2007 files on WSS


When a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site collection is searched by the Windows SharePoint Services Search service, the following 2007 Microsoft Office document types are not indexed:

e.g.
Microsoft Office Excel 2007 (.xlsx, .xlsm)
Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 (.pptx, .pptm)
Microsoft Office Word 2007 (.docx, .docm)

Reason:
Ifilter for Office 2007 is not installed.

Solution:

1.Download and Install Office 2007 Microsoft Filter Pack

2.Register the Ifilter on your SharePoint index server

Now, SharePoint search will return Office 2007 documents in search results
