    I have new MAC 13" Air w/ pre-installed LION. I noticed that from finder, the search doesn't work. I have bunch of files (.doc, .xls etc) and when I type in doc or xls in search bar, these files don't show up.. its blank. What could be problem?

    Can you post a screen shot?

    Also check in System Preferences under Spotlight and see that you have what you need enabled.

    I just need to do .doc to see all doc files..
