How to force oracle text index to include embeded objects

Yannis_r2Feb 16 2014 — edited Feb 16 2014


I have created a text index to help me with serarch within documents' text.

When I have an embedded file it ignores it i.e. an excell spreadsheet inside a word document. So when I search a phrase that is in the word file its working great. But when I search for a word inside the embedded excel, it finds nothing.

Is it possible to extract the text from embedded files as well? If yes how?  is there any document to look for or any example code?

for search i use the contains    "contains"  search functionality

Thank you,
