    Unanswered: Module for searching multiple .doc files on multiple terms?

    Hello All,

    Info on system setup:

    So I have an Access 2003 DB that is being used for career opportunities. This database sits behind my website where people can go to submit applications and upload their resumes in word.doc format. Every time a resume is upload it is place on a network drive that has a folder named "Resumes". This folder contains about 8500 files.

    My question...

    Is there any sort of method that can be used to do a search on all of these word.doc's using multiple criteria? I know that you can do a simple search using Windows that would be "one word or phrase in the file", but I would like to use more than just one word or phrase to go through every document and return some result.

    Any suggestions?

    Do you have to do it with VBA?
