Using index server with ADO calls

By Staff

Using Index Server's Objects

Did you know that you can use the Index Server, the content indexing engine included with IIS4, as you would any other database? You can make ADO calls to it and search your site, providing you with an excellent search engine for your webs.

It's pretty simple, really. You just declare the objects, make the calls to then engine and then reference the properties, columns and values that you ask for.  Pretty nifty, eh? 

"OK, so how do I do this?" you're asking... It's as easy as this:

  1. Set up the form page that will prompt the user for their input, to be passed to the Index server engine.
  2. Set up the ASP page that will query the engine and show the results
  3. Test... (of course...)
