Does anyone know how to accomplish this?  The search below only returns results when a specific column matches both words.  I want it to match if all words are matched, but in any full-text indexed column.  Anyone know if this is do-able?

DECLARE @keywords nvarchar(100);
SET @keywords = '"William*" AND "Travis*"';

SELECT RANK AS RES_RANK, * FROM VW_REQUESTOR_AGENCY_SEARCH,
CONTAINSTABLE (VW_REQUESTOR_AGENCY_SEARCH, *,  @keywords) AS TBL_SCH
WHERE [KEY] = VW_REQUESTOR_AGENCY_SEARCH.REQUESTOR_ID

According to several articles, the answer is to add a computed column on the view that concatenates all of the fields that you want to search.  Then, change your full text index to only include the computed column.  Then the query shown above works with no changes.
