Default Implement Search Functionality

Any idea how to implement search functionality in ASP.NET

Currently we have search functionality in the website but it is limited. When user enter some ID or name, System will search in database and return results.

Requirement is, user enter any keyword, we need to look into html files (marketing letters) and if there are matches, we need to show those files with paging functionality.

Any help highly appreciated.

Thank you

Hmm. You are going to need to invest in some sort of Server component that will allow you to search inside of documents on the file system. If you have the Indexing Service setup on your server you can follow this KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/820105

Outside of this, the only other component that I have worked with that provides a similar type of functionality is Adobe iFilter but it only searches the Text inside of PDF's.
