A method is described to extract information to be used for a contextual data repository when a document is first filed. A common set of search commands are translated into the particular contextual search program's commands by defining the process parameters of each contextual search program's commands. The common set of commands are used to access one or all of the data repositories. The contextual data repository is often large and comprises many different categories of information. There could be several different contextual data search applications that a contextual data repository might use. Each one has its own data formats and processing parameters. A user would like to file a document into the host library by submitting a generic request for contextual data extraction as well as a user specific request.
