    Hi everyone,

    Is there a way to search attachments that are uploaded to standard Attachment records, attachments only show up in global search if you search by the document name.

    Is it possible to search the content of the attachment?

    If it is not possible to search an attachment uploaded out of the box then is that possible to do using apex?

    Any replies are welcome.Thnaks

    Hi kumar,

    If you upload a document as a "file" (this is store as Chatter>Files>Document Name) the content becomes searchable. However this file cannot be linked to a contact record.

    you can implement this  by the help of triggers for more check https://developer.salesforce.com/forums/ForumsMain?id=906F0000000AaMqIAK

    Hape it may helps
