I would like to [h=3]Querying the Index Programmatically (Windows) and I found this link that shows several ways to do it. Basically, I have hundreds of ten-digit numbers and about 300 excel documents. I want to know which documents contain which numbers. I don't care if the output goes to a terminal screen or a file, I just need a quick and dirty way to know which excel docs contain a given number. From what I've read, the SQL approach seems easiest, but WHERE do I TYPE in the SQL command? I've download the Win SDL hoping it would have some kind of SQL command prompt window, but if it's there, I couldn't find it. TIA,[/h]Mike .
