Other File Formats Supported

FileHold document management software will still index, search, and display other file formats, but they will be treated as binary file types. In other words, all binary codes, etc. will be displayed along with the text.

Image Formats

FileHold document management software can extract and display embedded images in these document formats: Word (.doc/.docx), PowerPoint (.ppt/.pptx), Excel, (.xls/.xlsx), Access (.mdb/accdb), RTF, and email files including Thunderbird (mbox/.eml), and Outlook (.pst/.msg) files. Images are displayed using the HTML <img> tag and are not converted, so only images such as .jpg and .png that can be displayed in a browser will appear.

Embedded Object and Attachment Extraction

Embedded objects and attachments are indexed as part of the document that contains them. For example, a spreadsheet object embedded in a PowerPoint presentation would be treated as part of the PowerPoint presentation.

International Language Support

FileHold document management software search supports all languages through Unicode support. Unicode support allows for indexing and searching of non-English text, including every character set supported by the Unicode standard.
