Full Text Search string

Hi experts,
Below is the string sample which will be passed from UI
"Hello world" Test daterange:10012016-10312016 description:unique

This is what we are expecting as a search in SQL Server full text.
contains(*,'"Hello world"')
contains(*,'test')
contains(description,'unique')
date_of_record between '10012016' and '10312016'

Anything within double quotes is a phrase and description is a name of column in database table.

Any similiar solution or an idea would be very helpful.

Working with charindex, patindex etc..but running out of time, Help very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Ravi

Also can you provide me the T-SQL you are using currently.

I think yes you can try FTS.

Steps are-
1. Create a full-text catalog, if reqd.
2. Create the full-text index.
3. Modify the list of noise words, if reqd.
4. Modify the thesaurus for the language being used, if reqd.

Below is the really good blog url you can follow-

Hi Pawan,

Thanks for your response.

IS there any concern with Full-Text Search?Appreciate you opinoin, before we move further along with this option. Are there any better options?

Here is the scenario.
Basically there is a table which gets inserted once every month around half a million records, and has around 50 columns. No inserts or deletes or updates until next month , where it gets truncated. We plan to create full text index on this and use the seacrh as described above.Does this solution fit the need?

Have no queries yet. Just finding best solution either with csutom .NET assembly with Regex /Regular expression or T-sql .

Any help is very much appreciated.
Thanks,Ravi

Ravi, you can and should use Full-Text search feature to perform queries on text fields (BLOB).
Just don't forget that this feature also requires maintenance because it also suffers from fragmentation. For that schedule regularly an ALTER FULLTEXT CATALOG REORGANIZE and ALTER FULLTEXT CATALOG commands.
