I am new to ASP so bear with me if I ask anything stupid...<BR>I am working on an online college newspaper site with a large archive of old articles (over 10,000). I have decided to use a database to keep track of the article information and keep the article text in seperate files. I was wondering how I should perform a search of the archive. Would a full-text search of all of the files be painfully slow? Am I wrong in thinking that it would be a bad idea to keep the article text in the database? (I was thinking about formatting issues and the fact that all of the old articles are already in html files). I can always limit the year and section that the user searches, but I would like to have a full archive search.<BR>Thanks!
