How to search ASP files for text string with Windows Explorer Search ??

tmb
I need to search a folder & sub-folders for key words in ASP files...

I can open the files with Notepad and see the text string there...

But when I try to navigate to the folder with Windows Explorer, right click
and 'search for word in file' ... it reports back that the text string was
not found.

I've fooled around with the 'advanced' settings but can't seem to make it
work... even when I'm searching a single folder with a single ASP file in
it... no matter what the text string... it won't find it... neither will the
standard search tool with xp-pro.

thanks for any help.

This is an operating system question, so I suggest you ask in a group that
focuses in the operating system you're running.

Ray,

Thanks - I thought the ASP guys would better know than just an XP-Pro guy...
but I'll post over there...

They're just text files that you're searching. Personally, I use Textpad's
"find in files" feature for such things, but that'd be the case whether
they're ASP files or any other type of file.

Aaron, if you see this maybe a FAQ entry would be appropriate

That did it for me and works fine now using the XP-Pro search tool.
