indexing and Searching pdf files which are used as attachment in an Announcemnet list item RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am using a SharePoint 2013 online environment and trying to search and find pdf files which are attached to a announcement list item. However it does not find anything when I search for the name of the pdf file or the content of the pdf file.

    When I attach a word to the list item it gets indexed and it find the file.

    thanks and appreciate every kind of advice.

  • Are you able to search for pdfs in other locations? SharePoint 2013 comes with an iFilter out of the box unlike 2010 which needed configuration.
