    Default How can I?

    Hi Guys!,<BR><BR>I was wondering what alternatives are there to full-text searches since I need a solution that would work with both MS SQL as well as MySQL. Appreciate any suggestions.

    Default There are none...

    There are no alternatives to a full-text search that are even worth *thinking* about. Simple one or two word searches in text fields? Oh, okay. But anything with relevance ranking and proximity testing and and and ...all the things full-text searches are good at? Forget it.<BR><BR>And there is NO STANDARD any place for how full text searches work, so you have no choice but to choose one DB and do it that way. If you have to change DBs, you have to change methodolgy. Period. No choice.<BR><BR>
