I'm having trouble implementing a query for searching names on a table PERSON, which has two columns, FORENAME and SURNAME.
I'll use FULL TEXT SEARCH for doing that, and already have created the FULL TEXT CATALOG and the FULL TEXT INDEX on this table.
Supposing that i have the following rows on the table:
1. FORENAME: "Barack" SURNAME: " of Mortal Kombat"
2. FORENAME: "Sadam" SURNAME: "Houssein"
3. FORENAME: "Crystal" SURNAME: "Obakwelu"
And i'm trying to search this name:
. Name to search: "Barack Hussain Obama"
I would do the sql query like this, supposing that @name is a parameter, and it would be passed by the user through the application layer, like a C# program:
declare @name nvarchar(30)
set @name = N'Barack Hussain Obama'
select FORENAME, SURNAME
WHERE CONTAINS( (FORENAME, SURNAME), @name )
How can i get this working? The problem is in the @name string.
ERROR: Syntax error near 'Hussain' in the full-text search condition 'Barack Hussain Obama'.
