I have a client that would like to archive all of the documents .word, .xls, .pdf, .jpg, email coorespondance, etc. into some sort of database so in the near future when the project starts up again all of the information is in a clear consise format. I was hoping that this forum could provide some guidance in selecting a software package and a discussion on how to proceed.
I have 6 gigs of documents in a folder on our server.
I was planning on delivering the organized data on a external hard drive after putting the data into some sort of database.
I would like to include metadata about each particular document.
who created the document,
Key words about the document's purpose,
time frame the document is revelant for,
and so on.
I would like to use a database structure and possibly hot link the document to the DB.
I would like to use xml (if possible) for the metadata.
any help is greatly appreciated on this
