I have a directory which contains many support documents with their file names as the description of what the support document is about.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to create an Excel spreadsheet that will place a Search Box in the spreadsheet for Keywords that are searched for in a directory of file names. That way the user can find only those files in that directory that have the keywords in the file name. I would like to have it list all documents with those keywords on the same page if possible.

Thanks. :)

You can create a spreadsheet that can do that, but why? Wouldn't it be a lot easier to just use Windows Explorer search function? That automatically pulls out all the file names on a single page. It's a simple START > PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > WINDOWS EXPLORER > Select the correct directory > SEARCH > ALL FILES AND FOLDERS > Type in the keyword.
