    Unanswered: How can i search through uploaded files in Access

    Is there any way i can browse or search through Uploaded files in a microsoft Access Database. For example, if i wanted to search for all files that had the word "Apple" in it or all the files with the word "House" is there any way i search for Key words in uploaded Word or image PNG files?

    IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE.
    I am Creating a Database for my boss, and he wants this done

    Please HElp.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Are the files just located in a folder somewhere or are they linked to Access? You might want to look in the help section of FileSystemObject and that might get you pointed in the right direction.

    Agreed here. If files need to be interrogated, then FileSystemObject is the first stop.
