Indexing Keywords Property in MS Word

Post by matthew.macdougall »

In an open Microsoft Word document there is a properties option that lets a user specify author, title and keyword information among a few other things. I'm particularly interested to know if the commercial version of Webinator will index keywords for a Word doc is the keywords property is specified. If it does, I would also be interested to know how Webinator treats these keywords. In particular, does order matter? Thanks in advance for any advice.

The current plugin will not pull out the keywords or any of the other properties defined on that page. We will look into supplying that data in a future release.

I know this is an old thread but is this now possible with version 4.x incl pdf/word plugin?

I've tried indexing some MS Word and PDF documents, PDF seemed to work fine and returned the values of the keywords field, but this seems to be ignored for MS Word files.

Any way around this?
Thanks a lot

As of Aug 2003 anytotx will extract meta fields from word docs. Check your version's release with
texis -version
or
anytotx --identify
To see the known meta tags run
anytotx -h
and look under the description for -M

It looks like we've got the April 2003 version here.
How can I get the later version without having to upgrade to version 5.x?

On another note, for some reason when amending the dowalk script it's not creating a new vtx script. Even removing this vtx file will not do it.
This only seems to happen with the dowalk script. It's running version 4.4.17.
I've checked file/folder permissions which seem to be fine.
Any clues?

Contact sales about getting product updates. I don't think you can get a plugin update without getting the latest version of the software.

What errors do you get when it tries to compile?
You could try compiling by hand from the command line:
texis -C dowalk

Compiling it this way gave me a better idea of the problem. For some reason webinatoradmin was called webinatoradmins. Renaming this to its proper name did the trick.

Thanks again.
