Searching for file contents in Microsoft Office files does not return any results.

Question / Problem

Searching for file contents in Microsoft Office files does not return any results.

Answer / Solution

If the search does not return any results, but te search filter have been set corretcly, this could be due to a missing file content reader for Microsoft Office files. The reason for the absence of these handlers is in most cases a non-existent Office installation. 

If you do not want to install Office on your system, Microsoft provides separate filter packs to install these file handlers. These can be downloaded here: https://www.microsoft.com/de-de/download/details.aspx?id=17062
