    Is it possible to move multiple files into ONE folder ?

    Hi

    I have a folder which has lots of IT ebooks in a range of pdf, doc, chm files (approx 1000) and I just want to sort all the files and move them into a particular folder so it easier for me to find what I am looking for.

    For example I may have about 40 different ebooks on SQL but they all wont be under the S section they will be all over the place with various different files names but will have SQL somewhere in there. I need a tool to be able to look in a folder, I then input a keyword such as 'sql' and then it looks through the whole directory and marks/identifies which files have SQL in the filename. I can then select these and move these into a folder called SQL etc etc.

    I have looked to see if windows explorer could do this or even dos but am struggling to find a solution.

    I am using Windows 7.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Thanks

    I may be being slightly daft but how about searching on folder (using search box etc in vista/7 or search tool in XP) for word 'sql' and then from that window cut and paste where you want the files to be.
