How can I properly query SystemIndex when there are spaces?

Hi!

I have a CLR function that I reference from SQL to carry out full-text searches. The problem I'm having is that the path where the documents reside contains a space i.e. "C:\My Documents\Information". When I place the call I receive no hits. Yet, if I carry out the sample call with a path that contains no spaces i.e. "C:\MyDocuments\Information" I receive a slew of responses.

My query to SystemIndex is formatted like so:

"SELECT System.FileName, System.ItemPathDisplay, System.DateModified FROM SystemIndex WHERE SCOPE = '" + Scope + "' AND CONTAINS('" + Contains + "')"

Open in new window


Does anybody know what I can do to get around this issue. All the examples I find online refer to a path that have no spaces, but client setups vary across the board and we can't enforce that as a rule.

Please help.

AND CONTAINS('" + Contains.Replace(" ", "") + "')"

The issue here is the SCOPE portion of the query. The path is the one that contains spaces.

The solution is to replace space with an empty string . . . you can do that on the scope instead.

Thanks Kyle.

But I can't effectively replace "C:\My Documents\Information" with "C:\MyDocuments\Information". That would yield an entirely different path, which doesn't even exist in my directory.

Perhaps I'm not understanding your statement.

Try the following:
string.Format("SELECT System.FileName, System.ItemPathDisplay, System.ItemType, System.Size, System.ItemDate, System.DateModified FROM " +
" myserver.systemindex WHERE SCOPE='{1}' AND" + 
" System.FileName LIKE " +  " '%{0}%'"
, searchString, searchLocation);
