I am a student at Mankato State University and I am using asp and index server to perform search on a project that I am working on. I came across your article on the inteernet and thought you could help. <BR>I am successfully getting the result. Now the resulting documents need to be sorted by title. the catch is; the site search results page should ignore common words such as "and", "a", "the", & "an" when sorting the list of results.<BR>Right now I do a "order by title" that results in something like this<BR>All these are titles of resulting documents..<BR><BR>"A cat and the dog"<BR>"The apple of my eye"<BR>"A blue van"<BR><BR>Ignoring the noise words, the results should be sorted as <BR>"The apple of my eye"<BR>"A blue van"<BR>"A cat and the dog"<BR>Here the documents are being sorted by the first meaningful word. Hope someone can help.
