    Unanswered: Document Management Systems

    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.
    like
    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
    I can be reached at

    for any additional questions

    Responding via email is considered a consulting arrangement by my company. I don't think that's what you had in mind.

    Would you like to discuss the idea here in the forum?

    Yes I would like to discuss document management software options inside this forum.
    Also I might add that I have mimimial database experience. I can run queries in access. That is about it.

    thanks in advance

    Have you considered Microsoft SharePoint? That is a pre-packaged solution that delivers what you've asked for so far.
