add a quick search functionality in ASP or ASP.NET page

I want to add a "quick search" functionality in ASP or ASP.NET page. I heard
we can use Microsoft Indexing Service to accomplish the task, but not sure
how to do it. Is this the correct approach?? Please advice.

Thanks,
John

John,

William is right index server is the way to go.

If you also need to search database results I've created a component that
you send a datatable and search text and it returns a dataview that includes
all the original columns ranked by row. It allows you to specify which
columns to search and searches not only by the full text but by how many
times each word occurrs in the entry. It's working very well for me so far.
I've also created a help file for all the assemblies I've created.

The entire project is available for free (every bit of code is free) on my
web site, www.aboutfortunate.com. Just go to the code library and click the
"Search" button in the left menu.

Sincerely,
