Search Word document attachments?

We have the need to be able to search MS Word documents
as part of RT search.

Any ideas where to start on that?

Thanks!

You will need a MS Word -> text converter. Then when an
attachment is of type MSWord, run the converter to generate
a text version of the document, then use that to feed a
fulltext index. Then your searches will pull up the
documents automatically.
