Search not indexing all of document RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, have SP 2010 environment. Have case where search does not return all documents it should find. Appears not all document is being indexed. No errors or warnings related were found in log.

    File type: csv

    Size: 3.2 MB

    Same file , multiple copies: searching for value 234564

    234564 is on line 515 (if cvs opened in excel) - search returns/finds  the file - correct

    Another copy of same file with 234564 on line 13800 only  - search does not find - incorrect

    Another copy of file with 234564 move to line 500 - search finds the file - correct

    I know there is a default of 3M size for indexing for excel (which we also upped) but this is a csv file, 

    Any ideas?

  • Hi Jim,

    I test in my environment, I create three simple csv files which the size is only several Kb with the keyword 234564 locates at line 515, 13800 and 500 respectively. All the file appear in the search result.

    It seems that the keyword which located in line 13800 cannot be crawled due to the large size.

    I suggest you divide the large file into small size files.

    Best regards,

    Grace Wang
