Hello,
I need an advise on searching text files. I have a database that searches retailer listings, each retailer has a description about him in a text file. I need a way of searching this text file. I thought about putting the description in the database as one of the fields of the table, but I probably will use MS Access, and each text field is limited to 255 characters -- I will have more than that. So, I thought about storing these descriptions in files on the server, but I need a way of searching through them, if someone types a keyword, the search should go through all the files and find text files where these description appear.
Does anybody have an advise on how I should go about accomplishing this?
thanks,
Alex Kravets
