Oracle Text - Version: 11.1.0.7 to 11.2.0.3 - Release: 11.1 to 11.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This document helps and explains how to index a BLOB column inside a table which contains a Microsoft Word 2007 document (new Microsoft formatting).

From database 11.1.0.7+, Oracle Text uses Oracle Outside In HTML Export for document filtering instead of filtering technology licensed from Autonomy, Inc. This will allow from database 11.1.0.7+ to index Microsoft (Office) Word 2007 documents. Kindly refer to the Appendix B of Oracle Text Reference for a complete list of filter-supported document formats in 11.1.0.7.
