Hello, I have a litle query that I am using to search inside a database, I have a fulltext index for the fields "titulo & descripcion", and the query works... the problem comes when I put something that doesn't exist in the database (like the search I have in the query "280394829038402938409283403409240240849") this shouldn't give results but the problem is that it keeps giving me results... is there something I am doing wrong?

Thank's

SELECT * , MATCH(titulo, descripcion) AGAINST ('280394829038402938409283403409240240849') as coincidencia from preguntas order by coincidencia DESC

The match relevance is returned as a positive floating point number, or 0 for no similarity. It must be deciding there is a small similarity somehow! Try this:

SELECT * , MATCH(titulo, descripcion) AGAINST ('280394829038402938409283403409240240849'  IN BOOLEAN MODE) as coincidencia from preguntas order by coincidencia DESC

you have to put that into the WHERE also!
SELECT * , MATCH(titulo, descripcion) AGAINST ('280394829038402938409283403409240240849') as coincidencia 
  FROM preguntas 
 WHERE MATCH(titulo, descripcion) AGAINST ('280394829038402938409283403409240240849') 
ORDER BY coincidencia DESC
