Multiple Parameters Using Full Search Index

Nov 26, 2014

Using a full search index with the following query works with just one parameter.

declare @P0 varchar(50) = '"First*"'
FROM TableName
where contains ((Col1, Col2), @P0)

How do I make it work if I have two parameters, while also protecting the parameters from injection attacks?

declare @P0 varchar(50) = '"First*"'
declare @P1 varchar(50) = '"Second*"'
FROM TableName
where contains ((Col1, Col2), @P0 AND @P1)

If they weren't parameters, you put single quotes around the ' @P0 AND @P1' to get this query to work.

In addition, while "where contains((Col1,Col2),@P0) and contains((Col1,Col2),@P1)" works, it appears to increase the execution time.

MS SQL Full-text Index Search

Jan 16, 2006

First of all I’m new to MS SQL, I did work with mySQL
Table name db (real db has 12 columns)
Id         c1                    c2        c3
1          tom                  john      olga
2          tom john           olga      bleee
I enabled full text index on all columns
Problem when I do search like this:
SELECT * FROM db WHERE CONTAINS(*,'?tom? AND “john?')
It will return only one row (id 2) – I understand that the full text search does look only at one column at a time because it did not return row #1
Anyway I thought that I can add extra column c4 and when user enters new data it will save data from columns c1, c2, c3 to c4 (varchar(750)) and then I will do search only on c4 – this way it will work the way I want.
1)       Is there any better way to do this?
2)      How do I sort results by “rank? with SQL

3. Function 3
4. Function 4

Where i want the first answer alone. But it works good with the strings (ex: Broken Wire) where both are strings. :)

Wont it work with the text which is a combination of a string and a number like 'Function 1'

Kindly guide me!!

How Can You Use SQL Full Text Search CONTAINS() With An 2.0 ObjectDataSource Using @Parameters?

Nov 22, 2007

How can you use SQL Full Text Search CONTAINS() with an 2.0 ObjectDataSource using @Parameters?
MSDN says something like this, but only works directly using like the Query from SQL Manager:
USE TestingDB;GODECLARE @SearchWord NVARCHAR(30)SET @SearchWord = N'performance'SELECT TestTextFROM TestingTableWHERE CONTAINS(TestText, @SearchWord);
I tryed to mak something like that work with the DataSet DataAdapter Query Builder for the ObjectDataSource, but you can't use DECLARE or SET.
SELECT TestTextFROM TestingTableWHERE CONTAINS(TestText, @SearchWord);
But again it says @SearchWord not a valide SQL Construct
Is there anyway to make a DataSet.DataApater.ObjectDataSource work with an SQL FTS CONTAINS() with @Parameters?

Full-Text Search And Output Parameters

Nov 14, 2007


I'd like to incorporate search functionality (SQL Server 2005 Full-Text Search) into a web application, so I want to be able to return a paged list of results based on the user's search terms. I already have a parameterized stored procedure that returns a list of products when a category ID is supplied. I modified this procedure to use a different input parameter (@SearchTerms), but I'd still like to return the number of records, as in the original stored procedure.

However, I'm getting this error: Invalid object name 'ProductEntries'.

Here's the original stored procedure:

ALTER PROCEDURE dbo.GetProductsByCategoryID
@CategoryID INT,
@PageIndex INT,
@NumRows INT,
@CategoryName VARCHAR(50) OUTPUT,
@CategoryProductCount INT OUTPUT

SELECT @CategoryProductCount = (SELECT COUNT(ProductID)
FROM Products
WHERE Products.CategoryID = @CategoryID)
SELECT @CategoryName = (SELECT CategoryName
FROM Categories
WHERE Categories.CategoryID = @CategoryID)

DECLARE @startRowIndex INT;
SET @startRowIndex = (@PageIndex * @NumRows) + 1;

WITH ProductEntries AS (
SELECT ROW_NUMBER() OVER(ORDER BY ProductID) AS Row, ProductID, CategoryID, Description, ProductImage, UnitCost
FROM Products
WHERE CategoryID = @CategoryID

SELECT ProductID, CategoryID, Description, ProductImage, UnitCost
FROM ProductEntries
@startRowIndex AND @startRowIndex + @NumRows - 1


And here's the modified one:

ALTER PROCEDURE dbo.GetSearchResults
@SearchTerms VARCHAR(200),
@PageIndex INT,
@NumRows INT,
@ProductCount INT OUTPUT

SELECT @ProductCount = (SELECT COUNT(ProductID)
FROM ProductEntries)

DECLARE @startRowIndex INT;
SET @startRowIndex = (@PageIndex * @NumRows) + 1;

WITH ProductEntries AS (
SELECT ROW_NUMBER() OVER(ORDER BY ProductID) AS Row, ProductID, CategoryID, Description, ProductImage, UnitCost
FROM CONTAINSTABLE (Products, *, @SearchTerms, 25) AS c, Products p
WHERE c.[KEY] = p.ProductID

SELECT ProductID, CategoryID, Description, ProductImage, UnitCost
FROM ProductEntries
@startRowIndex AND @startRowIndex + @NumRows - 1


I thought I might be getting this error because SELECT @ProductCount occurs before the ProductEntries table is created, but when I move that SELECT statement further down, I still get the same error.

How can I get the value of @ProductCount in this scenario so that I can display it in the UI of the web app?

Full-text Index Search Not Returning Expected Results

Apr 11, 2007


My full-text search isn't working at all! I have a temporary table with full-text indexing enabled where files are scanned for social security numbers. If it has one, the user will see a message that it believes it's found a SSN and won't upload it. There is only ever one row in this table, as we overwrite the contents upon each upload.

I'm testing this search, and it doesn't work. The table has the following columns:
attachemtId (int) - primary key
fileContent (image) - contents of the file
fileExtension (varchar) - extension of the file (this is always either ".pdf" or ".doc")

I created a .doc file that simply says "ssn", and then run the following query:

SELECT * FROM TempAttachment
WHERE CONTAINS(fileContent,'ssn')

and nothing is returned! I tried the same thing with a .pdf file, and same results.

I'm not sure if this is related, but earlier I had this issue where I had to reset permissions for the directory. I've tried removing the full-text index and adding it again, but that didn't do anything. I also checked error logs on the server, and there were no messages. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

FullText Search Not Returning Results After Rebuilding Full Text Index

Aug 6, 2012

We have a table that is Full Text Search index enabled on one column.This table has 200 lakhs of rows(20000000) . ContainsTable() function is searching data with in these 200 lakhs of rows(20000000), if any new rows are inserted then the ContainsTable is not going to search in these recent inserted rows.

We observed when we try for a data to search. it is returning the rows till the rows that are inserted date is less than 30th of march 2012. but not searching in the records that are created after April month , if even the data we are searching is available .

TableFulltextItemCount is around 2.2 crores.

Then we done rebuilt the FT catalog Index. then the TableFulltextItemCount became 0.Again we run the containstable query ,but still it is not getting results.

As the no of rows are very more . so i am not able to show the actual rows from which the data is not coming.

the below query gives 2 results that are from actual base table

HTML Code:
select * from g_case_action_log where cas_details like '%235355%' and product_id = 38810

To search for the same above word using FTS,I have used the query as below

HTML Code:
SELECT Distinct top 50 cal.case_id,cal.cas_details From g_case_action_log cal (READUNCOMMITTED)inner join containstable(es.g_case_action_log, cas_details, ' ("235355" OR "<br>235355" OR "235355<br> ") ') as key_tbl on cal.log_id = key_tbl.[key] Where cal.product_id = 38810 ORDER By cal.case_id DESC

I have attached one sql script file for your ref that contains create logic and index schema properties

Why it is not returning results all the time.

Full-text Search Does Not Automatically Update Index When CHANGE_TRACKING AUTO

Apr 25, 2007

On Sql Server 2005 Standard if I insert a new row into SomeTable that has a full-text index:

insert SomeTable(keywords)values('this is a test')

and then query:

SELECT * FROM Message WHERE Contains(keywords, ' "test" ');

I get the expected rows all rows that have "test" in the keyword.

On Sql Server 2005 Express new rows are not returned unless I rebuild the catalog.

Is this a known limitation of Express?


CREATE TABLE [dbo].[SomeTable](
[key] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
[keywords] [nvarchar](255) NOT NULL


ALTER FULLTEXT INDEX ON [dbo].[SomeTable] ADD ([keywords])

Search Multiple Parameters In Multiple Tables

Dec 21, 2007

I am trying to build search engin with 11 parameters in 4 different tables in the database.
For example:
In search.aspx I have 11 textboxes namely
nameTextbox, phoneTextbox, nationalityTextbox, ageTextbox etc.
And in the result.aspx page I have gridview which post data from the database if the search match.
I wrote this stored procedure. P.S please ignore the syntax.
  @name var(30),

@nationality (30),

@phone int,



Select a.UserId, b.UserId, c.UserId FROM Table1 a, Table2 b, Table3 c


name LIKE '%' @name '%'

OR nationality LIKE '%' @nationality '%'

OR phone LIKE '%' @phone '%'

But I got an error when I am trying to execute this code because the nulls values so I wrote
 1 @name var(30),
3 @nationality (30),
5 @phone int,
7 etc
9 as
13 Select a.UserId, b.UserId, c.UserId FROM Table1 a, Table2 b, Table3 c
17 name LIKE '%' ISNULL(@name, '') '%'
19 OR nationality LIKE '%' ISNULL(@nationality,'') '%'
21 OR phone LIKE '%' ISNULL(@phone,'') '%'
23 etc

Also the error still exist.
What is the best way to search for multiple parameters in multiple tables ?

Full-text Search Across Multiple Tables

Jan 13, 2006

Hello,We are developing an application against an MS SQL Server 2000 databasewhich requires that we implement full-text searching across columns inmultiple tables. The research that we have conducted seems to indicatethat this is not directly possible within SQL Server 2000. And we canfind no way to implement this as the catalogs that are generated aretable specific.As a work-around, we are planning to create a secondary table usedstrictly for searching which is going to denormalize and combine thesearchable data into one catalog. We just want to confirm that this isthe recommended approach or if there is an alternate solution anyonehas used. Please note that upgrading to SQL Server 2005 is not anoption.Thanks.John FlemingJoin Bytes!

Full-Text Search On Multiple Tables && Columns

I have FT the both the tables above and I am able to get results from the  [tStaffDir] table but not the [tStaffDir_PrevEmp] table.The [tStaffDir_PrevEmp] table does have a column (which is [ID]) that is indexed, unique and non-Nullable.Please advise what I should do and look out for.

Full Text Search In SQL 2005 On Multiple Tables

Dec 28, 2007

Hi, There have been a number of posts on querying multiple tables using full text in SQL Server.  I haven't quite found the answer I'm looking for, and I'm aware that in 2005 some full text functionality changed. I have an Events table which joins to a Venue table and also a many-to-many link (via a table called EventsToArtists) to an Artists table.When a user searches for "Rolling Stones Wembley" (without the apostrophes), I want the query to look in the following columns:Event.EventNameEvent.DescriptionArtists.ArtistNameVenue.VenueNameI have done quite a bit of testing on this, and haven't yet got the desired results.  Rolling Stones will be found in the Artists table, and Wembley in the Venue table.  At the moment, if I search for Rolling Stones, it behaves as expected.  But if search for the venue name as well I get no results.  I'm pretty sure this is because EventName wouldn't contain all key words and so the record is excluded from the results.  At the moment I am using INNER JOINs between the tables....perhaps I should be executing a full text search on each table's catalogue and then do a UNION to join the resultsets?Hope you can point me in the right direction.Thanks

Adding A Full Text Search Across Multiple Tables (with Text Fields)

Sep 7, 2007

Hi, i'm trying to do a full text search on my site to add a weighting score to my results.  I have the following database structure:
Documents: - DocumentID (int, PK) - Title (varchar) - Content (text) - CategoryID (int, FK)
Categories: - CategoryID (int, PK) - CategoryName (varchar)
I need to create a full text index which searches the Title, Content and CategoryName fields.  I figured since i needed to search the CategoryName field i would create an indexed view.  I tried to execute the following query:
CREATE VIEW vw_DocumentsWITH SCHEMABINDING ASSELECT dbo.Documents.DocumentID, dbo.Documents.Title, dbo.Documents.[Content], dbo.Documents.CategoryID, dbo.Categories.CategoryNameFROM dbo.Categories INNER JOIN dbo.Documents ON dbo.Categories.CategoryID = dbo.Documents.CategoryID
GOCREATE UNIQUE CLUSTERED INDEX vw_DocumentsIndexON vw_Documents(DocumentID)
But this gave me the error:
Cannot create index on view 'dbname.dbo.vw_Documents'. It contains text, ntext, image or xml columns.
I tried converting the Content to a varchar(max) within my view but it still didn't like.
Appreciate if someone can tell me how this can be done as surely what i'm trying to do is not ground breaking.

Help W/ Stored Procedure? - Full-text Search: Search Query Of Normalized Data

Mar 29, 2008

 Hi -  I'm short of SQL experience and hacking my way through creating a simple search feature for a personal project. I would be very grateful if anyone could help me out with writing a stored procedure. Problem: I have two tables with three columns indexed for full-text search. So far I have been able to successfully execute the following query returning matching row ids:  dbo.Search_Articles        @searchText varchar(150)        AS    SELECT ArticleID     FROM articles    WHERE CONTAINS(Description, @searchText) OR CONTAINS(Title, @searchText)    UNION    SELECT ArticleID     FROM article_pages    WHERE CONTAINS(Text, @searchText);        RETURN This returns the ArticleID for any articles or article_pages records where there is a text match. I ultimately need the stored procedure to return all columns from the articles table for matches and not just the StoryID. Seems like maybe I should try using some kind of JOIN on the result of the UNION above and the articles table? But I have so far been unable to figure out how to do this as I can't seem to declare a name for the result table of the UNION above. Perhaps there is another more eloquent solution? Thanks! Peter

SQL Search :: Full Text Search With Single Character Returns All Rows

Jul 21, 2015

Our clients want to be able to do full text search with a single letter. (Is the name Newton, Nathan, Nick?, Is the ID N1, N2...). Doing a single character full text search on a table work 25 out of 26 times. The letter that doesn't work is 'n'. the WHERE clause CONTAINS(full_text_field, ' "n*" ') returns all rows, even rows that have no 'n' in them anywhere. Adding a second letter after the "n" works as expected.

Here is an example

create table TestFullTextSearch (
Id int not null,
AllText nvarchar(400)
create unique index test_tfts on TestFullTextSearch(Id);
create fulltext catalog ftcat_tfts;

SQL Server 2014 :: Semantic Search Not Finding Keywords Identified By Full-Text Search?

Nov 6, 2014

I have a scenario of where the standard Full-Text search identifies keywords but Semantic Search does not recognize them as keywords. I'm hoping to understand why Semantic Search might not recognize them. The context this is being used in medical terminology and the specific key words I noticed missing right off the bat were medications.

For instance, if I put the following string into a FT indexed table

'J9355 - Trastuzumab (Herceptin)'
'J9355 - Trastuzumab emtansine'

The Semantic Search recognized 'Herceptin' and 'Emtansine' but not 'Trastuzumab'

Nor in

'J8999 - Everolimus (Afinitor)'

It did not recognize 'Afinitor' as a keyword.

In all cases the Base of Full-Text did find those keywords and were identifiable using the dmvsys.dm_fts_index_keywords_by_document.It does show the index as having completed.

why certain words might not be picked up while others would be? Could it be a language/dictionary issue? I am using English and accent insensitive settings?

Create Site Search Using Sql Server Full Text Search

Jul 24, 2007

would you use sql server "full text search" feature as your site index?  from some reason i can't make index server my site search catalog, and i wonder if the full text is the solution. i think that i wll have to you create new table called some thing like "site text" and i will need to write every text twice- one the the table (let's say "articles table") and one to the text. other wise- there is problems finding the right urlof the text, searching different tables with different columns name and so on...
so i thought create site search table, with the columns:
id, text, url
and to write every thing to this table.
but some how ot look the wrong way, that every forum post, every article, album picture or joke will insert twice to the sqr server...
what do you think?

Here is my Stored Procedure creation sql:

CREATE PROCEDURE sps_searchTitles(@searchTerm varchar(255)) AS

SQL Search :: Can't Get Expected Results With Contains And Full Text Search?

Nov 1, 2015

I am using Sql Server 2014 Express edition.I have a table with a varchar(max) column. I have created a full text search that use the stoplist "system". column has this struct: xxx.yyy.zzz.... where xxx, yyy, zzz... are numbers, like 123.345.123123.366456...I can have rows like that:


I am trying this query:

select * from Mytable where
contains(MyColumn, '123.345.')

I gues the contains would return all the rows with column contains 123.345, but this does not return all the expected rows, only one row.I have tried to replace "." with "-" but the result is the same.I have also tried with '123.345.*. In this case I have got more results, but no all the exptected rows.If I use this query:

select * from MyTable where
MyCOlumn like '123.345.%';

Full-index Does Not Fully Populate When Doing Start Full Population

Nov 5, 2007

I have sql server 2000. I copied a database from one server to another. I have one table that has a full-text index. When I transferred over the database, the index still existed, but was not populated. I made sure the path for the file is pointing to a new correct location. I did "start full population". It only populated one entry @ 1MB. On the old server the index is 100MB with more than 3 million records.

I tried rebuilding, re-creating, and it all works, but when I run "start full population", it only populates 1 record. I double checked the table in question and it has over 3 million records and proper primary key.

How do I resolve this.

SQL 2012 :: Full Text Index How To Make It NOT To Index Embedded Or Attached Documents

Sep 30, 2015

I am using Full Text Index to index emails stored in BLOB column in a table. Index process parses stored emails, and, if there is one or more files attached to the email these documents get indexed too. In result when I'm querying the full text index for a word or phrase I am getting reference to the email containing the word of phrase if interest if the word was used in the email body OR if it was used in any document attached to the email.

How to distinguish in a Full Text query that the result came from an embedded document rather than from "main" document? Or if that's not possible how to disable indexing of embedded documents?

My goal is either to give a user an option if he or she wants to search emails (email bodies only) OR emails AND documents attached to them, or at least clearly indicate in the returned result the real source where the word or phrase has been found.

Clustered Index Vs. Full Text Index

Jun 18, 2008

Quick question about the primary purpose of Full Text Index vs. Clustered Index.

The Full Text Index has the purpose of being accessible outside of the database so users can query the tables and columns it needs while being linked to other databases and tables within the SQL Server instance.
Is the Full Text Index similar to the global variable in programming where the scope lies outside of the tables and database itself?

I understand the clustered index is created for each table and most likely accessed within the user schema who have access to the database.

Is this correct?

I am kind of confused on why you would use full text index as opposed to clustered index.

Thank you
