Haven't decided... probably c# custom made program or something like that. I
tried using access xp but it says sql server 2005 is newer than it so some
features aren't allowed in access. I haven't got the expert experience
needed (probably) to create the frontend in c#, so I will probably stumble
through it for a while. The db design is one of my hugest weak points
though. Any ideas on how to do something like this?

Hi andy,
In my opinion, you should store the files in the file system and the
information about the files in the database. Out of curiosity, what are you
going to use as the front-end?

I need to write a program that references, categorizes, indexes and allows
searches (including full text searches) on data inserted into the database.
Different data formats like Word, rtf, txt, html and other sources would
have to be put into the database. Is it easier/better to insert the files
themselves (i.e. insert the actual word file) or just the text+formatting of
the word file? Any ideas how to do this stuff or where I can find out more?
