How to search for words and phrases in multiple pdf documents

Dear Sirs.

I need to search for words AND phrases in a huge amount of PDF files (over 5000). The problem I found by using the "advanced search" is that I am able to search for single words sentences individual GOLD, but I need to combine a lot of words and multiple expressions in the same search. For example, if I need to look for instances of the word 'Florida' or 'Texas' or 'United States', I can't search for each PDF file that contains the word 'Florida' or 'Texas' or the phrase 'United States', since if I put 'word' in the search options, I will receive all the files that contain the word "Florida" or 'Texas' but also 'solidarity' or 'States' and simple words. I tried placing quotes in the words I need to research such as phrases, but it did not work. I would like to know if there is a way I can search the way I need.

Thanks in advance.

  • How to search for a Word document in Windows 8?

    I'm stumbling around Windows 8 that came pre-loaded on my new laptop.  I ordered Windows and Excel to be included in the package.  I saved a number of documents in Word, and now I need to get these documents for a particular.  I looked on the Internet and found a lot of no-help, that is to say, 'go in search of a file'.  Excuse me, but if I could find searching a file, I could probably find out how to search for the file, Huh?  Thus,.

    Could someone please help me with: how to find a Word document (1) and (2) where is the infamous "search"?

    I did the thing 'sweep to the right side of the screen"to get those things shadow to appear, and click on the magnifying glass (which I think the engineers forgot to change when they changed everything!) and if I wanted to search for apps, I'd be in great shape.  But his files I'm looking for, Word documents.  The designers of this 'new' version improved - well, new, in all cases seem to have forgotten those of use who use computers for productive work and not socialize or play games.

    Sorry for the hike and whining, but I'm very frustrated that the tasks that were once very simple are now extremely difficult to fill.

    It's pretty easy, at the beginning screen just type the name of your document and right it will bring the search screen and you select files (files, settings, Apps). Take a look at:

    How to activate the search function.  I get no match found when I search for words on the scanned PDF document

    A scanned document is just an image; even if it contains text, it is not searchable.

    Put text in a scanned image available, you will need to perform the recognition of text (OCR), which can be made with Acrobat, but not the free player.

  • Search for an exact phrase (quoted text)

    Hello!

    I'm trying to search for the exact phrase - "for this issue", but it seems that ITS ignore text between quotation marks and give me the result with only "issue" world.

    Is this a Bug?

    I don't believe it. The two 'for' this 'this' are the words of text stoplist Oracle. Those words 'noise' which are ignored by ITS during indexing.

    Here is a link I found that might be useful: http://download-uk.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/text.102/b14218/cdatadic.htm#i1014730

    This list can be changed for indexing of ITS.

    I hope this helps.

  • Script to search for text and remove the hyperlink and characterstyle link which applies (back to normal)

    I need help with my script to search for text and remove the hyperlink and characterstyle link which applies (returns the normal text).

    I can't do either as I want.  I want the user to be able to type in a dialog text they want to search for, do search this text IGNORING case (case insensitive) and then for all instances that he find it, remove character styles that are applied to the (set to [none]) and delete the hyperlinks.

    My code seems to define the character style [None], when I click on the text and look at the window of character Styles, BUT all old styles (font color, underline) are always applied and removed not as I want.

    Also, I can't understand how to remove all of the old links.

    Here is my code:

    myDocument var = app.activeDocument;

    var noneStyle = myDocument.characterStyles.item ("[None]");

    var myFindVal = "";

    var myErrorText = "";

    var myErrorCount = 0;

    myDialog = app.dialogs.add var ({name: "search user submitted text and delete hyperlinks from objects found.", canCancel: true});

    {with (MyDialog)}

    {with (dialogColumns.Add ())}

    {with (borderPanels.Add ())}

    staticTexts.add ({staticLabel: "search and delete hyperlinks for :"}); "})

    myTextBox var = textEditboxes.add({minWidth:100});)

    }

    }

    }

    If (myDialog.show () == true) {}

    myFindVal = myTextBox.editContents;

    doSearchAndReplace();

    app.findTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

    app.changeTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

    If (myErrorCount == 0) {}

    Alert ("done! ("Part of the links have been removed for: '" + myFindVal + ""! "");

    }

    else {}

    Alert ("last error: '" + myErrorText + "' & number of errors:" + myErrorCount);

    }

    }

    myDialog.destroy ();

    function doSearchAndReplace() {}

    app.findTextPreferences.findWhat = myFindVal;

    app.findChangeTextOptions.caseSensitive = false;

    app.findChangeTextOptions.includeFootnotes = false;

    app.findChangeTextOptions.includeHiddenLayers = false;

    app.findChangeTextOptions.includeLockedLayersForFind = false;

    app.findChangeTextOptions.includeLockedStoriesForFind = false;

    app.findChangeTextOptions.includeMasterPages = false;

    app.findChangeTextOptions.wholeWord = false;

    var myFoundItems = myDocument.findText ();

    for (i = 0; i < myFoundItems.length; i ++) {}

    myRemoveHyperlinkAndStyle (myFoundItems [i]);

    }

    }

    function myRemoveHyperlinkAndStyle (myFoundItem) {}

    try {}

    myDocument.hyperlinkTextDestinations.item (myFoundItem) .remove ();

    myDocument.hyperlinkTextSources.item (myFoundItem) .remove ();

  • Please, give me an advise how to search for a number in a file xml (as3.0)

    Hello! Sorry for the troubling.

    Please, give me an advice how to search for a number in a file xml (as3.0)

    Thank you!

    My answer was based on your question to find numbers anywhere in the data to an xml file.  If you know that the data is digital data and the names of the nodes that contains this data, you do not have to check the characters and can only check numerical data using string values...

    function searchXMLFile(Event:MouseEvent):void
    {
    searchDisplay.text = "";
    var pageList:XMLList = xmlFileToSearch.receipt.number;
    searchDisplay.text = "false";
       
    for (var i: int = 0; i< pagelist.length();="">
    {

    If (pageList [i] == searchInput.text) {}
    searchDisplay.text = "true";
    }

    }
    }

    Even if you are looking for individual digital characters in the previous code that you would have always done by a false exit due having the line 'false' always cancel the real line...

    If (t.toString () .indexOf (m_sSearchTerm)! = - 1).

    {

    searchDisplay.text = "true";

    }

    searchDisplay.text = "false";  This will always overwrite the textfield

    This is way beyond what can be done with PDF, except by copying the text and make a new document in Word or something.

    That said, Adobe Reader on Windows may display the text AS IF the PDF file has been divided. It's the text reformatting. It may be possible in Reader for iPhone, you can try the player for ios forum.
