Thanks for the above info because as of 2005-06-30 this problem still
exists in WindowsXP with SP2. Changing the file extension to .TXT
causes "WindowsXP Search Companion" to work properly. Changing the
extension back to .SQL causes it to fail again. What was Microsoft
thinking when they decided to do it this way? If the file type is
displayed as "Text Document" in a detailed folder display then why
would "WindowsXP Search Companion" see it differently?

What are you tallking about. Do not snip the history.

The reason is WTF would a user want to search SQL files. So they can have lots of irrelevent hits when they are looking for a photo of their grandmother or an old resume.

Bit as you snipped I can't say more cos I have no idea what has gone on before. Repost correctly.
