Come on you MVPs...Access to Indexing Service...can it be done?

P: n/a
Rob
Is there a way to query Microsoft's index server service from an
Access front-end? When you run the index service on a workstation (or
a server), you can full-text index a directory/series of directories
and you can query that via the quick-and-dirty query capability under
My Computer/Manage/Services and Applications/Indexing Service/Query...
Can you connect to the same "engine" from Access?
Can you do the same from a client machine running an Access database
to the Server Machine (where hopefully I'll be running the indexing
service)
THanks in advance,
Rob

I do quite a bit of work with this but will wait for the MVPs to answer.

This MVP knows next to nothing about Indexing service.

I'd suggest reposting but remove the "Come on you MVPs" portion.
