Thanx Jack Sparrow. I did get it to work but it is very primitive. I ended up installing Super Finder XT, much more refined.

Here is a great software for doing a Search inside a file. Plus you can replace the information if you need to.

Windows 7's built-in search method is the most user-friendly. I have all my documents, music, pictures and videos indexed. So I can search for text in any file within a fraction of a second.
