SQl Server FREETEXTTABLE return matched text.

I have a table say tblResumes


ID  Name   Position   Resume(nText)

I run a FREETEXTTABLE search.

I want to be able to retun only the Text from the column(Resume) which match the keywords in the FREETEXTTABLE search.
Something along the lines of google results.

For Example(This is a sample resume in the "Resume" Column) :

 IF I run a search for 'Microsoft Database Administrator'

Is it possible to return only matched text chunks rather than return all the text from that column. Something like return the 5 preceeding and 5 succeeding words of the macthed keywords.

Is it possibel to do in SQl server or should this be done from the application end?
If yes then please guide me in the right direction.

as Far as i know :
you can't search inside a Ntext field.

what can you do ?
1) convert to nvarchar whe searching ==> Slow because every ntext must be converted

where convert(nvarchar(4000), Resume) like '%YoursearchMatch%'

2) you can extract all the records towards the Client and do the search there because they are all strings==> very slow.

if you need more info ....
poor beggar
