Indexing Unstructured Information in SharePoint Sources

The term unstructured information describes binary documents (ex.: .pdf and .docx documents) added using proprietary applications such as Acrobat or Word—it is automatically extracted using the corresponding converter or IFilter. However, its metadata is not indexed using SharePoint references (as for structured information)—it must be extracted using built-in or custom fields.

Note: For a list of file types supported by CES converters, see Supported File Formats.
