I am running IIS 4 and I have index server running. Index Server is running fine, it searches and everything. The problem is that it searches to well, it pulls up hidden directories and VTI* folders. My question is how do you exclude these files from the search using the asp form. I tried adding <BR><BR>"! #vpath *_vti* & ! #vpath *_private* & ! #vpath *_derived* & ! #vpath *_themes* & ! #vpath *_overlay* & ! #vpath *_fpclass* & ! #vpath *_borders*" <BR><BR>to the formscope path, and it just did not find anthing. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.<BR><BR>P Miller
