Cannot index an .xls file with indexer RRS feed

  • Question

  • The machine involved has only WORKS9 installed and not Office.  The indexer is set to index .xls files and correctly indexes .xlr files (Works native spreadsheet).  I suspect this is becuase Office is not installed, or is it something else?  How can I get the filter (as noted in the advanced indexing options) for Office without installing office.  I have it installed on another machine so could copy it if I knew what it was. 


    Is this a general issue with indexing filters namely that one has to have the software installed before they can be indexed full-text?  It indexes the properties just fine.
