Hi bluestarmoon,

Only one full-text index is allowed per table or indexed view.

You need to alter the fulltext index already set once, on your table.  SQL Server is throwing you the error because you can have only one full text index on any table.  Visit the below link for more help on alter fulltext index.

Hi, I was wondering if any SQL Server gurus out there could help me...I have a table I'm trying to apply a full text catalog to, however no results are ever returned due to the text column being cataloged being of varbinary(max) that's being populated from a converted nvarchar(max) value - I've narrowed it down to this specifically, populating with non nvarchar text seems to work fine.To re-create the problem quickly...If I populate the column viaCONVERT(varbinary(max), 'test text')then there is no problem, I get results as expected.However if I populate the column viaCON...

full text indexing #2
full text indexing Hi, In SQL Server 2005, if I set full text indexing enables in column MyDesc and 1. use “Select * from MyTable where MyDesc LIKE ‘%abc%’” would this be using full text indexing? Or  have to use Contains to get it be in use? 2. Once I create the full-text index, should I be setting it to populate periodically? Isn’t it populating itself?    1. Your first query will not need to use your full text index, instead it will likely just use your PK_index.  You can click the "Include Actual Execution Plan" to see how the query is performed.&nb...

How to : Select dataset from table - create excel file as binary stream
Hi. I am working on a project that select dataset from sql database table and create excel file stream from the output table and put the stream into binary column.

When I worked on the same project that deals with pdf, crystal report has function "export to stream" so I was able to store it in binary column in t...
