InfoRouter Content Search on MS Excel Documents

[InfoRouter] There is a known Microsoft issue which occurs when Service Pack 2 is applied to Microsoft 2003 Server. MS Index Server will index the content of an Excel file but will only create an index catalog of the textual and not the numerical content i.e. spreadsheet cells containing numbers cannot be searched upon whereas those containing text are fine and will return a search result.

A hotfix is available at the URL http://support.microsoft.com/kb/915800/en-us/

Important: Once the hotfix is applied you will need to perform a full rescan of the InfoRouter 'WHINDEX' index server catalog to ensure that Excel documents already in InfoRouter are indexed correctly. (jho)
