  • Searching inside an uploaded .doc file from within the ASP script

    Hi people!

    This is what I need to do:
    A client uploads a document (a msword .doc file) to the server,
    I need to search a string that document and find specific words in it
    (this is an Application to a School, most of them look the same, so all you can do is replace the school name in the application, but sometimes people forget to do so and get rejected for sending inappropriate application).
    So I need to find in each Application possible names of other schools and alert about it.

    I'm writing in ASP (I can use ASP.net as well)
    I DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO THE SERVER (it belongs to the hosting company, and there's no way of installing anything there)

    Thank you in advance

    Will probably have to set an appropriate MIME Type
    Since both asp and doc are microsoft babies there must be a way.

    Sounds interesting, let's wait and see what the pros will have to say.
    I know that I know nothing
