You can use the Zip Search program to find files that contain an Input or search term, like an order reference, or a customer account ID.
Zip Search searches the contents of files in zip archives, like those created by the Archive Workflow Data Task.
Zip Search was developed by Zynk, to quickly locate archived information, like
- missing Sage 50 Sales Orders in fail files
- downloaded XML data used by Zynk as an input
Zip Search can be installed via Zynk's Extensions & Additions
