I am sticking with my series of introductory Enterprise Search topics today by writing up some details on how to index a file share.  Setting up a file share index is pretty simple, but there are a few things to know, so that is the point of today...
I’ve made quite a few Enterprise Search posts and since I have a few talks coming up, I thought it might be a good idea to group up some of the posts for people that may be new learning it.  I hope you may find some of these useful. Customization...
I’ve seen a number of posts by people asking about how to customize the search results screen in MOSS Enterprise Search, so I thought I would take a little bit of time to describe how to do it.  Since this goes well with the two new talks I am building...
I am working on a talk about how to get data out of Enterprise Search for #SPSOzarks .  One of my clients particularly has asked me a lot on this subject.  Sure you can get to the data by using the API with KeywordQuery , FullTextSqlQuery ,...
I’ve been working on putting some stuff together for my talks at SharePoint Saturday Ozarks ( #SPSOzarks ) and ran into this interesting issue.  Now this may just be an isolated incident, but I have discovered a few errors that occur when trying...
I was reading the forums the other day and saw another post in the MOSS Search forum about someone wanting to be able to specify a custom sort order with the CoreResultsWebPart.  WildcardSearchWebPart will allow you to specify a static full text...
I’ve seen a few people asking about this in the Crawl Logs and thought I would take a few minutes to address it.  First and foremost this is a warning and not an error message.  Sometimes when you receive this message, it is the crawler behaving...
The other day I saw that @mrackley was looking for a way to deploy a .UDCX file to a data connection library.  Having CAML still fresh in my mind from the talk Kyle Kelin and I did on Monday, I decided to see if I could get the job done using the...
As I have mention in the past LINQ to XML is a great way to manipulate the XML data out of an InfoPath form .  I thought I would show how you can also use the same technique to work with the data of a form saved to a form library which launches a...
If you’re like me, you like to have as few manual steps in your deployment documentation as possible.  It’s easy to use the UI of your SSP to add a file extension to the list.  However, I would rather have code put those settings in there for...
Today, I am going to talk about how to work with the My Links functionality in MOSS using the API.  The first thing to know is that the API calls it a QuickLink.  Knowing this makes it that much easier on finding information you need in the...

Recently, I was troubleshooting and Enterprise Search / BDC issue and I encountered the following error when trying to view the entity page of a given LOB system. Entity id is invalid As usual, this error was completely and totally useless.  I really...
In Enterprise Search, I often find it useful to create a scope around a specific list template.  This gives users added flexibility in searching only specific lists of documents, list items, pages or whatever.  I think there are a few ways to...
This is kind of a strange error that I sometime receive when trying to startup a crawl in Enterprise Search.  I have only received it on MOSS servers with the Infrastructure Update applied, but it might occur on other versions as well.  The...
It’s been a while since I have done a how to post, so I thought it was due time. I see request all of the time for people wanting to provide very specific custom advanced search capabilities. The AdvancedSearchWebPart is ugly and bit lacking, but luckily...
