searching the files of *.xlsx extension

#1 Post by lukand » 29.09.2010, 11:00

Is it possible to enable searching within the new format *.xlsx? I tried to find files containing specific characters string but FreeCommander 2009.02b disregards it. Looks for me that only the extensions of maximum three characters can be searched. Does anyone else has noticed that? What about improving that in the future?

When you go to File - Search (Alt+F7 shortcut) you can't type *.xlsx in File name: field, Location tab?

Searching for files at all is not a problem for me. But if I try to narrow my quest using the field 'Containing text' then I cannot find anything, though I know that on the hard disc of my computer the specific file containing specific text does really exist. For some reasons FreeCommander is not able to look into the file content. It refers for new four-letter extension type files only. As long as a file is of maximally three-letter extension everything works fine.

Yes, I have the same problem. I can find "containing text" in any document besides the new .docx and .xlsx files. In order to find specific text in these file types I have to use the Windows search, ugh!
