Specific Search Terms Conforming to Document Interchange Architecture

       This article describes a method for encoding the
enterprise-specific search terms conforming to the search terms
constructs defined in the Document Interchange Architecture (DIA).

      Many IBM office product customers have expressed a requirement
that they be able to file any object into a DIA Library, and to be
able later to search on not only search terms with the
architecture-defined semantics (Author, Keyword, etc.), but also
search terms that express syntax and semantics defined by their
particular business enterprises.  No mechanism prior to this
invention disclosure exists in DIA to provide this function.  This
article describes a method for encoding the enterprise-specific
search terms conforming to the search terms constructs defined in
DIA.

      To meet this requirement, a new mechanism is provided to allow
the user to define and store their enterprise-specific search terms
in a separate sub-profile. This separate sub-profile is called the
"enterprise-specific search sub-profile".  Each enterprise may define
many enterprise-specific search terms.  The syntax and semantics of
enterprise-specific search terms are distinct for different
enterprises.

      The enterprise-specific search sub-profile is present when the
supported enterprise has a set of enterprise-specific search terms
associated with the object. The enterprise-specific search
