    Posted: 12 Mar 2015 at 9:25pm
Hi,
 
I do receive a lot of faxes in PDF and are stored in a folder... The entire files in the folder are OCRed and "full text index with catalog" are built them. 
 
I am looking for a JavaScript for searching phrases of string like "Request for Records", "Notice of Action"  and lot more phrases that I will decide later, using the built index, when a string phrase was found I would like to copy that file into a new folder I chose and folder will be defined in the code...  Currently I am doing this using getPageNthWord.
 
That process is slow and takes a while till it processes all the files. I would prefer this process to be done using PDF index to search for the whole phrase rather than scanning word by word of each page.
 
I am willing to pay fee if somebody develop that routine or help me on that..
 
Regards,
Jeff P.

Javascript can't access the index.

Create text files from the PDF files and use a program which search in the text files.

Hello,
 
Currently I have a JavsScript that does the search using the Built index and it uses aPath.pop(), I just don't know how to salvage the code and rather than poping up a dialog for all the hits "file names" that search has encountered into a dialog and display it, I just want to get the file names and do the copying of the file names into a new directory I decide in the code... I just do not know how to stop the display of and the dialog box but getting the file names and grab a copy of the file and copy it into a new directory. Any guidance is appreciated...
 
Regards,
Jeff P.
