I have my SQL Server 2000 (SP3) installation running on Windows 2000 Server (SP3) and my current database has one table with two columns that are full text indexed.

Th database currently has around 3.7 million records and the FT Catalog has rebuilt twice (also verified by the last population date) and as soon as the catalog is populated, it again starts a fresh population as it is currently doing (Status - Population under progress)
I have not added or deleted records from this table for sure since the last full population

I fail to understand the behaviour.

Can anyone suggest the reason why???

Thanks in advance
