full text search

It does not look like vista is full text indexing word documents.
I have set the option:
Indexing Options in the Control Panel and click Advanced,
then clicked the File Types tab. Add the .doc, doxc file types 
and clicked the option to "index properties and file contents."

However I still cannot full text search word document.

any ideas?

The answer to Vista's lame search is:


FileLocatorPro.  There's also free AgentRansack but like most free things, 
it's not superb.

WindowsXp search was slow but WORKING, especially with text strings.  I am 
sure it would be FINE today with much increased computer power.
But Vista took a step backwards in terms of search for ASCII/unicode 
It simply doesn't work.

By the way, disable that indexing on all drives if you don't want to be 
bogged down by it.... search still works OK esp. on powerful computers

The real solution for Vista users is:

Select All Pictures and Change Wrapping Style to Behind Text
I am trying to get a macro that can change the wrapping style to behind text for all the pictures in the document. It would also be great if I could get this macro to change a lot of other properties too. For example, I want all the photos behind text, center horizontal alignment, height = 4", width = proportional. It would also be great if this macro could add a text box under each picture which was grouped with its respective picture. Any advice on any of this would be greatly appreciated. Funny you should ask this now. I was just fighting with the same problem yeste...

Text wrap spec
People, I thought I understood that the text wrap limit for any given cell was 1024 and indeed when I look at the specification for Excel, it states that only 1024 text characters will display in a cell.

The total length of my string is 1093 characters (verified using the Len function). The last word wrap occurs at character 1032, definitely beyond the 1024 limit.

Text import wizard does import properly beyond text file line 1048

If you set up the text import to start on the first line of the text source file and put them into your worksheet starting on cell A1, then the importer will capture the first 1048576 lines and put them all into ...
