Viewing & Indexing MS Office Documents
SimpleIndex features full support for viewing and editing MS Office documents (Word, PowerPoint and Excel) on computers with or without MS Office installed. The full application interface is displayed within the SimpleIndex viewer, letting users view the full content of the documents, edit them with all the features of MS Office and save the changes. Modify privileges can be denied using Windows file security or by the SimpleIndex administration wizard to keep out unauthorized changes.
If MS Office is not installed, SimpleIndex can open and display them in the built-in viewer in read-only mode.
This video shows the Sort My Documents sample configuration. Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations are automatically sorted using the SimpleIndex template and dictionary matching algorithms.
The files are reorganized using the Sales Rep, Customer, Document Type and Date extracted from the text. SimpleSearch is then used to search and view the sorted files.
