Office Add-ins

Microsoft Office Add-ins, created for DataStore®DSX, enable you to Index Microsoft Office documents directly from their original application.

The descriptions given below are for Microsoft Word but the Add-ins work similarly for all Microsoft Office applications.

MS Word

When the DSX Office Add-in is installed and enabled in Word, you can display the Add-ins by selecting Show DSX on the Add-ins tab.

Enter the Index information in the Data Definition fields and then click Store. The document is then saved in DataStore®DSX.

Index Assistants Trigger in the same way as they do from Indexing Studio. However, currently, Document Index Assistants may return the temporary file name of the file instead of the correct file name.
