Searching based on Office Documents Properties

Hi all,

I suppose this may not be the first time this question is asked. I tried searching but could not get a good answer. Here goes...

I integrated a Physical Windows Share as a CM Repository

Physical Contents of this Windows Share folder are thousands of Office Documents (doc, ppt, xls - you name it)

Created an Index on the Repository.

Indexing, Crawling went well and are able to conduct a search. No problems !

Question is - how do I integrate the Document Properties to be searched or Index by TREX ?

Example, search for Author = BOB THORNTON.

TREX will then return documens (OFFICE Documents) (from Document Properties, under the Summary tab) in which Author is BOB THORNTON

Ideas, links or even a one-liner comment is greatly appreciated.

If you want to index and search for the properties of office documents (not the KM properties of KM resources), the so called "dublin core attributes", a special configuration is necessary. A How to Guide about this will be out soon. Please contact me, if you need more information beforehand.
