Can I get WSS 3 search results to return a file name?

Can I get WSS 3 search results to return a file name?

Can I get WSS 3 search results to return a file name?

(OP)
Showing some management folks some capability of WSS3. Specifically showing them a list of resume's stored in a SharePoint document library can be easily searched. Search is working ok except for the fact that the search results are returning the MetaData document "Title" (which isn't a field that's consciously updated) rather than returning the document file name, which is what we would rather have returned. Is there an easy way to go about having SharePoint return the "File Name" in the search results rather than the "title" metadata?

Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the reply but we only have wss3 and don't have a 64 bit server to put Foundation 2010 on.

If you watch that demo it will get you on the right track.

You need to modify the XSLT of the web part to display other fields.
