Great!  I learn more useful org-mode/Emacs commands everyday :)

    C-c a s +word1 +word2 -excludethisword RET
          lowercase 's'

I tried this with the org-agenda-text-search-extra-files setting above
and it runs through each of my archives stating they don't exist.

    non-existent file todo.org_archive. [R]emove from list or [A]bort?

Maybe it's looking in the wrong directory?

Thanks for this.  I can see this will be really useful for digging up
my old notes in my (now huge) org files (and their archives) :-)
