Search Tips:
At its simplest, a query can be just a word or a phrase. But with the tips on this page, you can expand the focus of your query to give you more complete results. These tips will introduce you to the Microsoft SQL Server Full-Text Searching capabilities.

Search Type Description
Inflectional Word Search Return results containing any inflectional form of the search term(s). For example, searching for the word play will return results containing 'play', 'playing', 'player', 'played', etc. (Default)

Non-Inflectional Word Search Return results containing only the specified search term(s). For example, searching for the search term "play" will return results containing the word 'play' without any inflectional forms of the word.

Phrase Search Return results containing the specified search phrase. For example, searching for the phrase "my computer" will return results containing the specific phrase 'my computer'.

Prefix Search Return results containing words that begin with the specified search term prefix. For example, searching for the prefix com* will return results containing the words 'computer', 'compare', 'commute', etc.
