    Unanswered: How to populate catalog for Full Text searches?

    i want to be able to do full text searches on a table that i have that already has data in it.. i created a new catalog, then started incremenetal population.. but nothing happened? will it only catalog the new data thats been entered into the table after i start incremental update? so since i have data in teh table already, would i need to do a full population first before i start incremenetal population?

    thanks!

    check out the remarks section in

    Books Online {sp_fulltext_table}

    if any of this applies
    drop your full-text index and re-create it and try a full population.

    microsoft sql server comes with a extremely usefull help file called books online. it is located in the

    START>PROGRAMS>MICROSOFT SQL SERVER directory.

    you should also go to microsoft's web site and download the most recent version of BOL(Books Online) for sql server. it is probably the most usefull collection of information available for SQL server and is the best help file that microsoft has for any of its products.

    dbforums is okay too.
