I'm using the Full Text Search with the neutral language in the indexed columns. I have no stoplists so everything counts. We changed to neutral language because our customers don't have the need for language specific criteria. They just want raw text search.Everything was working great but then they found a term that they can't search and I can't figure out what's wrong. It comes down to this:
SELECT * FROM sys.dm_fts_parser('"188.8.131.52"', 1033, NULL, 0);
SELECT * FROM sys.dm_fts_parser('"184.108.40.206"', 0, NULL, 0);
In the neutral language, the parser will return "3.4", differently than the English language parsing.In the 1033 language, the parser will break all the numbers into words and the result will show correctly.I really don't want to change the language from neutral because it's working for every other query.
I'm using FTS on on two columns (VARCHAR) of my database. The data is exported from a MySQL database to SQL Server. When populating the database the default language was set to English (or maybe neutral?), although 90% of the records are in Dutch. Now, when I change the FTS language specification to Dutch problems occur when querying the database. When I enter typical Dutch noise words in my query like "van" or "van der" the query does not return any results. When I set it back to Neutral the queries do return results, although a drawback is that I can't query for example plural forms of words. Could this be because, when populating the database, the correct language was not set? If so, is there a way to get the Full Text Index working with Dutch in a correct manner? Thanks in advance for your replies! Would be great to get this working in Dutch!
I have set up a full text search to handle multiple columns searching for chinese But the result of the search isn't really what i have expected. I have setup the catalog to have a chiense word break, and the columns in the tables are all nvachar when i do something like select * from dbo.Table_1 where contains(*, '"<chinese character>"',language 1082) the search result is really inconsistent, especially with single characters.I have also checked that these characters are not in the noise filter file.... the search result is better when the input is more than a single characters, but still, somtimes it will not return any result at all. so, I try to use the "like" statement instead of "contains" to do the search with the same inputs, and 100% of the time, it returns the correct result. does anyone have any experience about things like that? coz I guess this is a more spcific issue with language. Is there any place that you guys know of, can offer me some help? thank you in advance.
Full Text Searches are working on my test server, but not on my production server. My test scenario is as follows:
CREATE FULLTEXT CATALOG FTC_Test AS DEFAULT AUTHORIZATION dbo
CREATE FULLTEXT INDEX ON guest.FtsTest(FullName) KEY INDEX PK_FtsTest ON FTC_TestI wait briefly and then check to see if the index has been populated: SELECT * FROM sys.fulltext_indexescrawl_end_date is not null,
So I'm assuming I don't have to wait anymore before I try some FTS searches. Right? I can't get any queries to return anything, though.
The following tells me the full text item count for the table is zero:
DECLARE @TableId INT SELECT @TableId = id FROM sys.sysobjects WHERE [Name] = 'FtsTest' SELECT OBJECTPROPERTYEX(@TableId, 'TableFulltextItemCount') AS TableFulltextItemCount
As mentioned, the full text search works on my test server. Both of them are SQL 20012 SP1 (11.0.3000) x64 running on WinServer 2008 R2 SP1.
I am new to Full-Text Searches and FileTables. I am working on a resume search system. I created a FileTable and the Share which contains about 51,000 resumes in Word (DOC/DOCX), PDF and TXT formats that were copied over from our main file server. I followed the instructions on adding the Microsoft Filter Pack 2.0, and all searchable file types are listed in sys.fulltext.document_types.
I have a program that searches resumes by First and Last Name and/or E-mail Address. For a while, we thought it was working fine because we were getting hits, but then we noticed some Names and E-mail Addresses we new existed were not showing up in my CONTAINS queries -- but we verified the documents do exist and the Names exist in the File Name and inside the document along with the E-Mail address.
One example I'm working on now cannot find the First/Last Name with CONTAINS(name,"lastname") in a Word DOC file, but I can find the document using LEFT(name,5) = 'Smith'. It's a Word DOC file. For testing purposes, I opened the DOC file in Word, then used Save As to create a TXT and DOCX file within the same folder. Now, both of those are showing up in the CONTAINS but not the original DOC file.
I'm standardizing street addresses and i think full text search, maybe, work fine with my problem. My problem is that I have 2 millon of errors and using "LIKE" dont work correctly. This is what i have now:
UPDATE addresses SET standarAddress = REPLACE (addresses.streetAddress, errors.streetAddress, corrects.streetAddress) FROM corrects INNER JOIN errors ON corrects.id = errors.idCorrects
I have written this sample query to search a full-text indexed table and return the results. If the word occurs more than once I want it to return as a new record and the results show a short summary of the location. I was using 'like', but the full table scans were really slowing it down. Can performance be improved for the following (The results returned by my query are accurate)
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
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;
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)' AND 'J9355 - Trastuzumab emtansine'
The Semantic Search recognized 'Herceptin' and 'Emtansine' but not 'Trastuzumab'
'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?
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?
I have installed the Adobe iFilter 11 64 bit and set the path to the bin folder. I still cannot find any text from the pdf files. I suspect I am missing something trivial because I don't find much when I Bing for this so it must not be a common problem.Here is the code.
--Adobe iFilter 11 64 bit is installed --The Path variable is set to the bin folder for the Adobe iFilter. --SQL Developer version 64 bit on both Windows 7 and Windows 8. USE master; GO DROP DATABASE FileTableStudy; GO CREATE DATABASE FileTableStudy ON PRIMARY
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:
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.%';
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.
Hello everyone ! I want to perform Full Text Search with SQL Server 2000. My documents (.doc, .xls, .txt, .pdf) are stored in a SQL Server field which is binary (the type of the column is image). I would like to know, how you can extract pieces of text from the documents. Example: I have a ASPX page with codebehind in C# making the search in a table in SQL server that is full text indexed. I make a search looking for the word "peace", than SQL server will take care about the search and return it to me the rows that match with that. But also I'd like to extract the 50 characters before and after where sql server found the word "peace" to show in the result page. Does anyone has any idea how to work around it ? Best regards. Yannick

I am asking about installing Microsoft Search service in SQL Server 2000 in Windows XP Professional Is that possible? And By the way it's not possible for me to switch to SQL Server 2005 that I know that full text indexing already exists in it
After following all of the steps in Swynk's Guide to Full Text Search, I still can't seem to retrieve any records from the full-text search. I get messages saying that I created the Index correctly and that I successfully populated the catalog. But when I View the Properties of the catalog, the Unique Word Count = 1 (but there are thousands of words in the table). I know that there is a record with the word "help" in one of the full-text indexed columns, but when I call Contains(column-name, 'help'), I recieve an empty recordset.
Does anyone have any suggestion on what I can try next?
My Prod. server is having SQL Server 7.0 with SP2 installed. I am planning to install Full Text Search component. I know I have to run setup and select Full Text Search from Server Components. But, Do I have to re-install service pack 2 after this ? What are the other concerns in, such modifications to the existing SQL installation ?
Greetings ! Has anyone seen a problem in SQL 7 where you create a full text catalog, define an index on a table, and run 'populate', and end up with an empty catalog ? It runs for a while during the population, and there are no messages in the logs, but the 'item count' property of the catalog is 0. Also you can run a query that uses the index (i.e. uses 'CONTAINS') and you receive no error, and no results. I've set this up on other servers, so I know it works, but can find no mention of this problem anywhere.
