Full Text in SQL 2005 vs SQL Express

Full Text in SQL 2005 vs SQL Express

Post by VG9tV » Sat, 08 Dec 2007 08:06:00


Does full text work the same in both of these? From what I've read, it
appears SQl Express only searches in text columns....

I have a client who needs to search in a a column which contains imported
Word docs, etc. (varbinary(max)). Can this be done in the Express version or
not?

Thanks,

Tom

Hello Tom,

According to this MSDN article, SQL Express did not support to full-text
query the varbinary(max) column. But the SQL Express with Advanced Services
support.

You may try to use that Edition.
