Unable to create a product specific search on each product page


I'm unable to create a product specific search on each product page. Any search box will search the entire Productivity Hub. I could do this in the old Productivity Hub (2007), and we would like this feature to work in the 2010 version. For example: searching on the Hub homepage will search for documents in all products, but searching on the Excel product page will only find Excel documents.

I am not sure if this would work, but it might be something to try. You could add a "Search Box" web part to your site, which will then search just the document libraries within your site.

The process to do this in 2010 (in the ribbon): Page > Edit > Insert > Web Part > Search > Search Box > Add

The search box web part can then be positioned wherever you'd like it to be on your page. Remember, you have to add the web part to the site not within the library.

One additional item to note, in the 2013 version of SharePoint (coming soon) this functionality is even better where they have added more enhancements to the search subsystem.
