File search without vector store option

hello community,

I am a little confused with some of the assistant v2.
I need to use assistant that I created but by uploading file from my local machine.

Do I need to store it vector store and then use it or is there any other way?

Have you had a look at the detailed guidance on the file search capability yet?

If so, is there a specific step where you are facing issues?
