View Full Version : Seach Engine!

02-11-2003, 08:13 AM
Can anyone of you help me on this matter.
I want to create a search engine which allow our user to search only our site. I have no idea on how to start.

I did come across some article about Microsoft index Server, but really confusing. I can't access to IIS web server as our site is hosting at hosting company.

Please advice!

Here's an article about it with the code at the end of Part 4. I've never searched through a site (just databases for me), but it looks like a decent script after just scanning through it.

actually, I did come across the article before.....it is really decent, but when I try to run the code, an error occur:

Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A003E)
Input past end of file

I'm now still finding what is wrong.....help??

Check the code :

If Request("boolean") = "AND" then
bolAnd = True
bolAnd = False

There is supposed an "end if" after the else.
Hope this help.

hi, whammy,

would like to know, can FSO works on doc/excel/pdf files, this is because i failed to use FSO for reading doc and xls file...it displayed


instead of the real content (text only)

Nope, as far as I know it can only read text files (since HTML is really just a text file it has no problem with that).

It can easily _create_ .csv files or .xls files which are automatically read by Excel if you use a comma-delimited format (there's a really good thread about that on this forum if you search for it), but in order to actually _read_ an Excel or Word document you probably need to use an ActiveX component of some type (just guessing).

I have never tried that yet, but if I were you I'd do a google search (like "Read Excel file with ASP Active X" maybe?), and a similar search on MSDN, you'll probably come up with something...

Welcome here, but please do not hijack other peoples threads. Especially not since there are three suggestions in the previous posts of this thread, to find a searchengine like that.

I agree... if you want search functionality, there are plenty of posts dealing with that type of thing if you just do a search of the forum (or a google search!).

"ASP Search Engine"

"ASP Search Script"

should turn up a lot... I'm going to go ahead and close this thread... if you need help with a specific script, please post the code in a new thread of your own.
