Search for specific file types (datacard)

I've had a few (read a lot) of requests regarding our search card in EPDM.


Our users are asking if it is possible to preset a datacard to search for a specific filetype like you can preset a datacard to search in a specific place.

They want to search only on a filename and not a type for instance if they search for S23500-01 they only want to see the PDF file and not the parts and assembly for this specific order.

But they don't want to type S23500-01.PDF and mainly that is because we are having some VERY non-technical people using the search function.


Is there anyway to do this or to set this up on a search card?

I was thinking about a checkbox, if checked it would search for PDF files otherwise all filetypes. But I can't find a solution on this one, I have contacted our VAR but they are useless in this matter...


We are currently running EPDM 2010 SP4, looking to upgrade to EPDM 2012 SP4 within 6 weeks.


Any help would be appriciated!
