SharePoint
I'm a Business Analyst working a large insurance company in the midwest. This company has a substancial SharePoint installation. They will not turn on the feature which allows searching the contents of files on their SharePoint system. Is the a workaround for this which I could implement i.e. using a third party application or a homebrewed javascript program?

Hello Deford,
certainly using the embedded search capabilities will save you lot of time, anyway you can accomplish to your goals with an almost ready-to-go by Microsoft called Search Server Express 2008 or by writing some ASP pages that will do this job.
Bye
