access thread: Searching binary fields

Message #1 by "Padgett Rowell" <padgett@i...> on Tue, 18 Sep 2001 00:45:06 +0800

We are storing Word docs (mostly - a few excel spreadsheets as well) in

an OLE field.  We use the OLE control to store and display the docs.  

Does any one know how to efficiently search the OLE field for keywords?

I have tried looping through each record, loading the binary field into

an OLE control to open the document, then search it, but found this

method is tooo slow.

Any other suggestions would be great.
