SELECT * FROM [dbo].[FTSearch] WHERE contains(Context,  'formsof (inflectional,"student''s")  ')
i need to access Apostrophe (') in contains method
Changing the apostrophe into two apostrophes won't work (student''s Document). Been there. Done that. Can't do...

my accepting Result sholud be like
Student's Document
Student's Site
Student's Result.....................Something like this   so my need is that How can I make my full-text search support the apostrophe? If it is indeed not possible, can you provide a link to an article that concludes/proves that MS SQL Server full-text search does not support the apostrophe in the search string?

Thanks In Advance:-)

Why not searching for "student"? And for the plural form use an additional LIKE.

Try this:
SELECT * FROM [dbo].[FTSearch] WHERE contains(Context,  'formsof (inflectional,"student")  ') and Context like '%student''s%'

Just double up on the single quote since it is inside single quotes
SELECT * FROM [dbo].[FTSearch] WHERE contains(Context,  'formsof (inflectional,"student''''s")  ')

Could you simply replace the ' with a ascii character for a ', char(39) so the result would be ('Student' + char(39) + 's Document')
