SharePoint Does Not Index PDFs by Default

Posted in SharePoint | Office at Tuesday, 07 March 2006 22:43 W. Europe Standard Time

PDF IconRather by accident I found out that SharePoint Portal Server 2003 does not index PDF documents by default. This may be because PDF is a non-Microsoft format. But PDFs are commonly used when exchanging documents in cooperative work environments like SharePoint  Team Sites.

The steps to take to enable search for PDF documents on a SharePoint Server are pretty straight forward and extensively described. If you are looking for the icon file that is neither included in the PDF IFilter setup nor in SharePoint itself, simply issue an image search.
