Can't find text in xls file with converter

#1 Post by Pamelap » 24.08.2018, 00:44

Just downloaded latest version FreeComander and latest

Set it all up.

Added the Converter so I can search all the files, exactly as described in FAQs, including all the stuff suggested in the thread doesn't search in pdf files, which have worked for other people.

I have the box ticked on the Converter tab. for the list of file types. Everything looks fine.

However can't find a word that I know is in cells in every xls file in the directory I am searching. I can find the files, they all show up on a filename search, but it's not searching for text inside them, or at least not finding it when I know it is there. I am using the Location Tab for searching.

Also, I have no idea what the Filter tab does or what to put in it. Is that relevant?

On the "Filter" tab you can e.g. exclude some files from the search ... #_Filter_1.
Could you send me your xls file (and your settings files) for testing?
