Full-Text Searching using CONSISTS

P: 9

I've a list of Values with varchar field in main in a table. I wanted to have fast search as there are very less insertions/updations. Thought to do a FullText Searching on that varchar field.

Imp Note: The name column can be a phrase too.

I want to search on the key stroke from front end.
so should be able to search the name column on single charater or words.

declare @a varchar(10)

--to search a single value
--@a = 'a'
select name from tablename where CONSISTS(name,@a)

--to search a word starting with in the text
set @a = ' " ' + @a + ' *" '
select name from tablename where CONSISTS(name, @a)

--if searching a word
--@a= 'apple'
select name from tablename where CONSISTS(name,@a)

--If searching for a phrase and its continuation
--@a = 'apple and'
select name from tablename where CONSISTS(name,' "apple and*" ') --don't result any rows

--> this all worked out fine individually
But in stored procedure I need to write only one query
How to go on with this...
as I need to use * at the end...But for the last criteria It doesn't work out...
Plz suggest me a gud way to go on...

I can find no reference to a CONSISTS keyword in Access or VBA, and to be honest none of the code given here looks like VBA. What language are you referring to, sree078?

The code given here looks more like SQL Server or perhaps MySQL can't remember which as I only touched on both briefly in my latest term of school. It's most definitely not Access. Though Access may be used as a front-end I believe this belongs in a seperate forum.

You've posted this in the MS Access forum, which is unlikely to get you a resolution to your problem! I'll move the post to the .NET forum.
