I have script that returns results from search form querying my IIS index server catalog.
Currently i can use a single keyword search and  I would like the query to be able to search multiple words such as "Senior Analyst", where curerntly I can only search for either "Senior" or "Analyst"

Thank you all in adavnce

My current code is bellow
sSearchString = Request.Form("query")
Const SEARCH_CATALOG = "All" 'remember to change this
%>
 <%
Set oQuery = Server.CreateObject("IXSSO.Query")
oQuery.Catalog = SEARCH_CATALOG
oQuery.Query = "@all " & sSearchString & " AND NOT #path *_* AND NOT #path *downloads* ...

Hi there,

This article will tell you exactly what you need to know:
http://www.codeproject.com/KB/aspnet/search.aspx

Though it was written for ASP.NET and you're using ASP, the concepts are identical. This is the basic query:
SELECT Rank, VPath, DocTitle, Filename, Characterization, Write
FROM SCOPE('DEEP TRAVERSAL OF "/"')
WHERE NOT CONTAINS(VPath, '"_vti_" OR ".config"')
    AND CONTAINS(Contents, '"keyword1" AND "keyword2"')
    AND CONTAINS(DocTitle, '"keyword1" AND "keyword2"')

What you are going to want to do is to build up a query with as many "contains" strings as you need. In ASP you could do that by splitting the search term into an array and looping through it, adding another  "contains" string to a concatenated search query string.

Be sure to sanetize the user's input, just to make sure they don't try any SQL injection nonsense.

I know this will work for your application because I have implemented it myself on a heavily trafficked publick site.

Good luck and cheers,
-KF
