Hello, we have a SQL 2008 R2 Database running in compatibility mode 80.  If we were to start using Full Text Search, would this still work against the database being in mode 80?

Thanks.

Yes, that should not be a problem as Full-text is an old feature of SQL.

i just built a database in compatibility mode 80 and create a Full Text Search on a table and it seemed to work fine.

So i think you are good to go......
