Hi team,

I am trying to find all the records which include the word roots for 'autism' or 'diagnosis' or any root extension thereon in the fields 'profile', 'services_information', 'other_information'.

SELECT
provider1_providers.provider_name,
provider1_providers.`profile`,
provider1_providers.services_information,
provider1_providers.other_information
FROM
provider1_providers
where
MATCH(other_information) AGAINST('Auti*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
or MATCH(other_information) AGAINST('Diagnos*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
or MATCH(services_information) AGAINST('Auti*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
or MATCH(services_information) AGAINST('Diagnos*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
or MATCH(PROFILE) AGAINST('Autis*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
or MATCH(PROFILE) AGAINST('Diagnos*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
order by provider_name


I have a Fulltext index set on the three fields 'profile', 'services_information', 'other_information' and 104 records are returned.

Is there a better way to do this than to use separate 'OR' condition statements ?

All help is appreciated
Cheers Bernard

Sorry

match(other_information,services_information,PROFILE) against  ('auti diagnos' in boolean mode)

returns 0 records whereas

match(other_information,services_information,PROFILE) against ('Auti*' in boolean mode)
or match(other_information,services_information,PROFILE) against ('Diagnos*' in boolean mode)

returns 33 records

and
 
match(other_information,services_information,PROFILE) against ('auti*' in boolean mode)
or match(other_information,services_information,PROFILE) against ('diagnos*' in boolean mode)

returns 79 records

and

MATCH(other_information) AGAINST('Auti*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
or MATCH(other_information) AGAINST('Diagnos*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
or MATCH(services_information) AGAINST('Auti*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
or MATCH(services_information) AGAINST('Diagnos*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
or MATCH(PROFILE) AGAINST('Autis*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
or MATCH(PROFILE) AGAINST('Diagnos*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)

returns 104 records

So is there a better way?

Hi HainKurt,

match(other_information,services_information,PROFILE) against ('auti* diagnos* Auti* Diagnos*' in boolean mode)  returned 104 records.

Looks like the solution

Just checking through NOT() to find exactly how many I should get.

Thanks
Bernard

PS was 34167302 a misskey of pi  ie 3.4167302?
