Title

Searching .pdf docs

Post

I'm a FileMaker novice, so I hope this makes sense. 

 

I have a folder of .pdf docs that I need to search with a pick list of keywords. The result should be a list of which files contain that keyword and on what page.

 

I'd like it to be a "live search" not just a bunch of stored information because I want to be able to add new .pdf's to the folder and keywords to the list without having to reprocess all of the .pdfs everytime I add a keyword. And I want to be accessible remotely via a website. And incorporating some way to calculate how "relevant" the results are to the keywords (like a google search) would be nice too.  

 

Can FileMaker do all of this? Please help!

Thanks!
