David writes "Hi SQL Guru, I am trying to union two queries into one result set using union. Both queries are full text searches using ContainsTable on different tables in the same database. There is one full text catalog shared by both tables. My problem is that I am getting rows that are duplicates in all columns except FullTextTable.Rank . . .

The only thing is if you are using this method to display information over the web based on a user input string (user is doing a search and you are displaying the results based on the SQL response) the table is already created , so you will have to drop the table before every search and so you may get into situations where users are dropping a table while the other user is still using it / or a situation where the table is locked.

Any other ideas will be welcomed
