    Office documents not appearing in recent file history
    I recently got a new external hard drive, where I store all my documents. However, none of the Microsoft Office files stored on this disk appear in the "Today/Yesterday/Past Week" locations.

    I'm assuming you're referring to the MS Office opening dialog (Word gallery, Presentation gallery, etc.) which lists documents that have been previously opened by Office applications? If you are, I believe that MS Office will only "remember" documents stored in the default user documents folder, not on a separate hard drive.

    No, I am not referring to the recent documents once an Office program has been opened. If you look in Finder, under "Search for" are Recent/Yesterday/Past week choices. That is where the documents are not showing up. This new external hard drive is a replacement for one I had been using, and it worked fine.
