SharePoint 2010 Search Results Showing Incorrect Title for Word Document

Our SharePoint 2010 farm displays the first 10 words or so instead of the title set in SharePoint for Word Documents. This is not a bug, but by design. A fix can be done through registry change.

  1. Open registry for editing by typing “regedit.exe” in Start > Run
  2. Navigate to the key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\14.0\Search\Global\Gathering Manager]
  3. Change the hexadecimal value for EnableOptimisticTitleOverride to 0 (zero) on the right hand side.
  4. Restart SharePoint Search service by typing the following commands in command prompt.Perform a full crawl
    • net stop osearch14
    • net start osearch14
  5. Perform a full crawl.
  6. Test your search results again.
