Hmm. Thanks Chris - I will look into this. FORMSOF does work with CONTAINSTABLE, right? -----Original Message----- Casey > Solved. > > DECLARE @SearchWord nvarchar(4000) > SET @SearchWord = 'tax' > EXEC('SELECT listing_id, RANK, name, address, city, zip, > heading, phone > FROM listings a, > FREETEXTTABLE(listings, *, ''FormsOf(INFLECTIONAL, '+ > @SearchWord +')'' > ) > WHERE [KEY] = a.listing_id > ORDER BY RANK DESC, name') You've solved the issue of the error that you were experiencing, but it may be worth checking your results. As I pointed out, the documentation specifies that FORMSOF cannot be used as the free_text parameter with FREETEXTTABLE. Are you 100% sure that FORMSOF is being processed, and not simply being treated as a string? I would personally be wary of using behaviour that differs to the behaviour stated in the documentation, as apart from anything else this may be "fixed" in later versions; breaking your application. FWIW, HTH.
