Hi experts, i am reading about FREETEXTTABLE (Transact-SQL)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms177652.aspx

but i need an example
unfortunately the example of Microsoft's site does not work. I make it work? or have another example?

this is my code
EXEC sp_fulltext_database 'enable'
EXEC sp_fulltext_catalog 'Cat_Catalog_Categories', 'create'
EXEC sp_fulltext_table 'dbo.Categories', 'create', 'Cat_Catalog_Categories', 'PK_Categories'
EXEC sp_fulltext_column 'dbo.Categories', 'Description', 'add'

USE Northwind;
SELECT FT_TBL.CategoryName
    ,FT_TBL.Description
    ,KEY_TBL.RANK
FROM dbo.Categories AS FT_TBL
    INNER JOIN FREETEXTTABLE(dbo.Categories, Description,
        'sweetest candy bread and dry meat') AS KEY_TBL
        ON FT_TBL.CategoryID = KEY_TBL.[KEY];

You do not appear to have populated the index.

You created the index, bu you have not populated it, so at the very least you are missing this step:
EXEC sp_fulltext_catalog ''Cat_Catalog_Categories', 'start_full';

ok, the example complete is
EXEC sp_fulltext_database 'enable'
EXEC sp_fulltext_catalog 'Cat_Catalog_Categories', 'create'
EXEC sp_fulltext_catalog 'Cat_Catalog_Categories', 'start_full';
EXEC sp_fulltext_table 'dbo.Categories', 'create', 'Cat_Catalog_Categories', 'PK_Categories'
EXEC sp_fulltext_column 'dbo.Categories', 'Description', 'add'

select * from dbo.Categories

USE Northwind;
SELECT FT_TBL.CategoryName
    ,FT_TBL.Description
    ,KEY_TBL.RANK
FROM dbo.Categories AS FT_TBL
    INNER JOIN FREETEXTTABLE(dbo.Categories, Description,
        'sweetest candy bread and dry meat') AS KEY_TBL
        ON FT_TBL.CategoryID = KEY_TBL.[KEY];
GO

Actually you are missing the step where you wait until the Full Population completes...
