Exclude Html Tags From Full-text Index?

I ran a CONTAINS query for the word "target" in a bunch of index web pages. I came up with lots of matches -- but they were all inside html tags:
 
<a href="www.foo.com" target = "_blank">lorem ipsum</a>
 
 

Is there a good way to exclude tags (and their attributes) from the full-text index?
 
 
Thanks!

A Relational Technique To Strip The HTML Tags Out Of A Ntext Datatype Field

I had a problem with the ntext datatype. I need to strip the HTML tags out of a ntext datatype column. I have sample query for that, which works fine for STRING, as stuff is the string function, what to do for ntext field.
 
=======The Process follows like this =========
 
--**************************************
--    
-- Name: A relational technique to strip
--      the HTML tags out of a string
-- Description:A relational technique to
--      strip the HTML tags out of a string. Th
--     is solution demonstrates how to use simp
--     le tables & search functions effectively

-- This table contains the tags to be re

-- will take care of any extra informati
--     on in the tag that you needn't worry
-- about as a whole. In any case, this t

CREATE TABLE #html ( tag varchar(30) )
INSERT #html VALUES ( '<html>' )

INSERT #html VALUES ( '<link%>' )
INSERT #html VALUES ( '</title>' )

-- A simple table with the HTML strings
CREATE TABLE #t ( id tinyint IDENTITY , string varchar(255) )

-- in a loop till all tags are replaced.
 
    BEGIN TRAN
    WHILE exists(select * FROM #t JOIN #html on patindex('%' + tag + '%' , string ) > 0 )

Remove ROOT Tags From SQL Task XML Results

Hi All,

I'm currently using an Execute SQL Task to return XML data from a query into an SSIS string variable.  In my FOR XML clause in SQL I'm specifying a certain name for my root tag, called "Accounts".  This works great in Management Studio, however, the Execute SQL Task appends a <ROOT> and </ROOT> tag to the start and end of the string, so now it looks like:

<ROOT><Accounts>...all my elements...</Accounts></ROOT>

I'd like to remove the ROOT tags so that the <Accounts> tags are actually the root for this doc.  What would be the best way to remove the ROOT tags from the SSIS string variable?

Thanks!

Full Text Search Indexing HTML - Does The Filter Expect Certain Tags To Be Present As Standard?

Hi, I was wondering if any SQL Server gurus out there could help me...I
have a table which contains text resources for my application. The text
resources are multi-lingual so I've read that if I add a html language
indicator meta tag e.g.<META NAME="MS.LOCALE" CONTENT="ES">and
store the text in a varbinary column with a supporting Document Type
column containing ".html" of varchar(5) then the full text index
service should be intelligent about the language word breakers it
applies when indexing the text. (I hope this is correct technique for
best multi-lingual support in a single table?)However, when I come to query this data the results always return 0 rows (no errors are encountered). e.g.DECLARE @SearchWord nvarchar(256)SET @SearchWord = 'search' -- Yes, this word is definitely present in my resources.SELECT * FROM Resource WHERE CONTAINS(Document, @SearchWord)I'm a little puzzled as Full Text search is working fine on another table that employs an nvarchar column (just plain text, no html).Does the filter used for full text indexing of html expect certain tags to be present as standard? E.g. <html> and <body> tags? At present the data I have stored might look like this (no html or body wrapping tags):Example record 1 data: <META NAME="MS.LOCALE" CONTENT="EN">Search for keywords:Example record 2 data: <META NAME="MS.LOCALE" CONTENT="EN">Sorry no results were found for your search.etc.Any pointers / suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers,Gavin.UPDATE: I have tried wrapping the text in more usual html tags and re-built the full text index but I still never get any rows returned for my query results. Example of content wrapping tried - <HTML><HEAD><META NAME="MS.LOCALE" CONTENT="EN"></HEAD><BODY>Test text.</BODY></HTML>I've also tried stripping all html tags from the content and set the Document Type column = .txt but I still get no rows returned?!?

Strip HTML Encoding Out Of A String In Sql Clr

I am trying to do string scrubbing in a sql clr function, including removing certain HTML formatting.  I would like to use HtmlDecode method, but it's my understanding that System.Web is not available for Sql Clr (without marking code unsafe - not an option for me as this is for an application we sell externally, and unsafe calls woudl not go over well with customers).  Is there any class that IS supported for Sql Clr that exposes this functionality?  Thanks.

HTML String Rendering In A Report

We have a "Comment" field that is saved as a HTML string to the DB.  This field needs to be pulled into a report as rendered HTML.

I know this has been hashed out before, but has anybody found a good solution in the past couple of months?

We are thinking about storing two versions of the Comment in the DB: one with HTML, one as simple text.  Has anybody found this an acceptable solution?  I know it flies in the face of good DB design, but it seems the quickest, easiest solution...

Any word if this will be fixed in the next major release of SSRS?  Can we expect this release any time soon?

Thanks for looking,

Smith

Display HTML Codes As HTML And Not Text

I am retrieving a field from SQL and displaying that data on a web page.
The data contains a mixture of text and html codes, like this "<b>test</b>".
But rather than displaying the word test in bold, it is displaying the entire sting as text.
How do I get it to treat the HTML as HTML?

Custom Code Blocks-XML Tags

I have a need to repeat many times in a given report an action where I can jump to report with a set of parameter values supplied. Rather than cut and paste dozens of times I thought I'd set this up as a function. I'm having trouble doing this. Would appreciate any help.

Here's where I call the custom code
<ReportName>CTRecDetail</ReportName>
<Parameters>=Code.GetEmbeddedSetUp(Parameters!FldName2.Value)</Parameters>
</Drillthrough>

I want it to return the series of xml tabs that would insert the code needed, e.g. I need to have it look like:

<Parameter Name="ID">
<Value>=Fields!ID.Value</Value>
</Parameter>
<Parameter Name ="FromDateTime">
<Value>=Fields!FromDateTime.Value</Value>
</Parameter>.........and many more, some of which would involved the IIF(Parameters!SortBy.Value="MRN", "Fields!SortBy.Value, "") ....etc.

Here's the custom function. ---Note I have tried three versions of creating a variable called ParameterSet to return. None seem to work. I keep getting an error message in Visual Studio that the element Parameters in namespace......has incomplete content....list of possible elements expected parameter.

Shared Function GetEmbeddedSetUp(ByVal ColumnLoc As String)
Dim ParameterSet As String
'ParameterSet = <Parameter Name="ID"><Value>=Fields!ID.Value</Value></Parameter>
'ParameterSet = "<Parameter Name="ID"><Value=Fields!ID.Value></Value></Parameter>"
ParameterSet = "<Parameter Name="'ID'"><Value>=Fields!ID.Value</Value></Parameter>"
Return ParameterSet
End Function

Appreciate any help. Thanks, Jim

Use Of ' - ' In Stored Procedure Using XMLDocument And Tags

Hi,

I have stored procedure using XMLDocument to retrieve multiple messages the code for stored procedure is

declare @DocErrorWarningMessage int

-- Generate xml document for ErrorWarningMessage Table

if @ErrorWarningMessage is not null

begin

exec sp_xml_preparedocument @DocErrorWarningMessage output, @ErrorWarningMessage

end

I am creating this string in stored procedure as follows ::

( @ErrorWarningMessage <> '' and ErrorWarningMessage.[Message] in ( select ErrorWarningMessage from openxml ( @DocErrorWarningMessage, '/root/row',2 ) with ( ErrorWarningMessage varchar(100) ) ))



Here @ ErrorWarningMessage is parameter which is being passed from UI (Visual .net C#),It may have certain values like "GuaranteedPayments is missing or invalid data type - defaulted using CertainPeriodEndDate".Hence the string that is hitting the database is somewhat like this

exec pcfnd_dataloaderrorsinforce @ErrorWarningMessage=N'<root><row><ErrorWarningMessage>GuaranteedPayments is missing or invalid data type - defaulted using CertainPeriodEndDate</ErrorWarningMessage></row></root>'

however if i try to execute statement it gives error message like "Invalid character '-' found near GuaranteedPayments is missing or invalid datatype"

Is the error due to ' - ' field in data or its some bug in sp_xml_preparedocument ??? Please help about the same....
