How to enable indexing of Office Document keywords in MOSS / SharePoint
- Go to the SSP admin site
- Go to Metadata Properties in Search Administration
- Find the Property Name “DocKeywords”
- Click on Office:5(Text) which should appear in the same row
- Tick “Include values for this property in the search index”
- Click OK
- I think a full index will need to run before documents begin to show up
That's it, or at least I think that's it. I tried so many things before these steps that I can't be sure it wasn't a combination of things. All I know is that if I untick that box and reindex it stops working. So I'm fairly confident this is the key. Happy days.
