I'm using command line

FileLocatorPro.exe -d r: -o "d:\search\TESTresults.txt" -oc -oft -pc -f "*.doc; *.docx; *.xls; *.xlsx; *.ppt; *.pptx; *.htm; *.html; *.pdf" -s

no matter the combination of -oc -of? -ol ?? switches I still can't get the output file to list the lines where the searched strings appear.
I just get a list of the files.

You appear to be missing the content part of the search, eg

-c "term" 

If you don't search by content you'll only get the file names returned.

okay, many thanks, this is true, unfortunately the search string criteria is 115 stings, when I placed them after -c it gave an error. If did not like OR between the distinct strings I've worked out I can save the search criteria as a file and use this with just the output parameters in the command line

FileLocatorPro.exe search.srf -o d:\output.txt -ofc
