  • Content Index is Corrupt

    I came in after the weekend to find out that someone reported the following error when trying to use my Enterprise Search page. The search request was unable to connect to the Search Service. As you may know, this is a very generic error that means something with Enterprise Search is really messed up...

  • NEW! Web Part for Wildcard Search in Enterprise Search

    I have had countless people tell me that they want to be able to do wildcard search in MOSS Enterprise Search using the existing Search Center site templates. The Search Center site template uses keyword query syntax which does not support wildcards. To get wildcards you need to use a full text SQL query...

  • Error: The parameter is incorrect. (Access denied by BDC.)

    When attempting to configure the Business Data Catalog for use with MOSS Enterprise Search, it can be quite common to get this message when you try crawling for the first time. The cause is actually pretty simple, but I figured I would give some troubleshooting advice today. When you get this error,...

  • Error: HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component

    I was working on an Enterprise Search deployment the other day and I encountered this lovely error. I found the answer buried in some forum posts, but I wanted to tell you what side effects I found when implementing the solution (and I wanted to make sure I could find the answer again someday when I...

  • Don't forget to set your row limit

    Recently, I wrote my own control to allow drilldown on Facets for one of our Enterprise Search pages, and someone pointed out to me that it never returns more than 50 results. It was then I remembered seeing a RowLimit property on the KeywordQuery and FullTextSqlQuery classes. I first checked the SDK...

  • Using LINQ to make Enterprise Search Results more usable

    In my previous post about using the KeywordQuery class, I had one small omission. The fact is that when you add your own managed properties using the SelectProperties collection of the keyword class, the data type you get back is a string[] containing 1 element instead of a string. This can be quite...

  • How to: Specify a Content Source using the Keyword Syntax

    At some point you may want to do an Enterprise Search query and specify that the results come from a particular content source. A lot of times you might create a custom scope with that content source in it, but if you don't want to create a new scope, you can just query the content source directly...

  • Specifying Scope(s) with the KeywordQuery class

    Today I realized that when I blogged about how to use the KeywordQuery class, I forgot to mention how to specify the scope(s) you are querying. You would think there would be a built-in property to set this, but there isn't. I wanted to see how Microsoft was doing it so I used reflector and examined...

  • How to: Use the MOSS Enterprise Search FullTextSqlQuery Class

    A while back, I posted a how to on using the KeywordQuery class and it seemed to get pretty good response, so I figured I would post a follow up on how to use the FullTextSqlQuery class today. It's actually pretty similar to using the KeywordQuery class but of course the syntax is different. I am...
