Good day,

I am using MySQL FullText indexing on a new project of mine.
What I don't understand is how inconsistent this functionality is.

For example:
I have the following two rows in a table of 1 column >
Column1
--------------
Value1
Value2


When searching for "Value1" (exact unique match) then it returns this row.
But when searching for "Value2" (exact unique match) then it WONT return anything.

In my real database I have the following unique values representing Value1 & Value2 in my example:
1) "YFY678GP"
2) "XT 660 R"

The only difference being value 2 contains spaces.
Could this be so big issue?

Please explain the  logic of FullText indexing in conjunction with MATCH AGAINST?

Thanks to ALL :)
