What Can I Use to Index Documents When I Don't Need Full Search Tools?
Glen M. Wilkerson, of Davis & Wilkerson P.C. asks: "We are a 23-attorney firm in Austin. I am looking for software that will index our briefs; not keeping the full text, but software that will allow very quick word searches to find a code or index number. I have looked and looked, and would appreciate your suggestions."

FIRST OF ALL, I'm curious why you don't want to keep the full text. I think it's a mistake because searching for legal terms, statutory references, and fact-oriented words can be a big help in finding prior work product on point, and it takes no extra effort to index the full text.
