search using the "A word or phrase in the file" returns no results

  1. Hi,

    When I try to search for documents containing a specific word, I get no
    results allthough the documents do contain the specific word. I have tried
    several things all without the desired result:

    * => did not help
    * regsvr32 Offfilt.dll => did not help
    * try Offfilt.dll from office 2003 => did not help
    * latest office updates => did not help
    * turn on indexing service advanced option 'index files with unknown
    extensions' => did not help

    OS used: Windows 2000 advanced server SP4/Windows 2000 Pro SP4
    Office used: Office XP up to date
    Documents searched: WinWord (.doc)
    Location of docs: network share hosted by a Windows 2003 Ent. Ed. server

    When I try the same search on a windows XP machine with office 2003 (up to
    date), I do get the right results. (Two Word documents, containing the
    specific verb searched for).

    Does anyone have an idea regarding this issue? In forward thanks!
