Need help with 'contains' in fulltext search RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello Forum,

    I have a table which holds large amount of sql statements - 1 per column, row.

    I need to find rows which contain schema name 'code'.

    So i am looking for strings ' code.' or ' code].'

    How would I construct the contains clause?

    I tried below - it produces wrong results. 


    contains(sql_text, 'code..')

  • Hello,

    What exactly do you mean with "wrong result"?

  • WHERE CONTAINS( SQL_Text, 'Code') should get you results for every description where either code. or code]. appears. Can you provide more information on "wrong results"

    Good Luck!

  • Hello Manu, Olaf,

    I will try to state the problem 1 more time.

    I have a table from mdw with sql_text column which holds every sql string for execution for the last month.

    I need to find all sql's which use db. schema 'code'. The word 'code' can be:

    a. used with other table schemas.

    b. be a part of the predicate. For instance: where column1 = 'code'.

    When I run: select sql_text from my_mdw_table where contains(sql_text, 'code'),

    I am getting 1000's of rows which do include a & b .

    However, I think I found the answer:

    select top 10 sql_text from dbo.notable_query_text where contains(sql_text, 'code') and source_id in(7,8,9)


    sql_text like '% [code[\]]'

    Thank you for your respond.
