Hi Jim. If you want to exclude topics or even parts of topics from Search, it takes a bit more than excluding them from the TOC and Index. Take a look at Build Tags. They are a simple way to identify topics or content within topics to be excluded from your build, or conversely, to be included as needed if you compile multiple "flavors" of your Help. Build tags are used in conjunction with a build statement you create as you generate your output. If you can't get going from the Help info on build tags, holler back.
I should have added as an example that I have created a build tag called Admin, and I assign it to topics and content that are in the project for my own reference, but that clients shouldn't see. I also have build tags assigned to content that is inserted into my project for software changes that are further down the road than the next release, so that I can exclude them until that release is ready.
Thanks, that gives me somewhere to go look for solution.
Thank you very much.
Thanks again for the example. Is this like conditional text? Or something slightly different? I guess I'll figure that out once I get in there. I'll let you know what I end up with.

that's basically what it is. text you identify as subject to a build statement that includes it or excludes it. when you generate your build, you'll see where you can build the statement. It's way wicked easy, as we say over he-ah in these pa-hts (NH).
Great. I'm on it right now. And whatever way you say it, it is appreciated very much in these parts!!!
That was the solution.
