Can I full-text search a temporary table?

If I populate a temporary table or a table variable, is there a way to search it with CONTAINS?

You can search a table using CONTAINS, if the table has a full-text index. Whether you can create a full-text index on a temporary table or table variable is another question.

I tried this -->

CREATE TABLE #sp_who3 
( 
    SPID INT NOT NULL, 
    Status VARCHAR(32) NULL, 
    Login SYSNAME NULL, 
    HostName SYSNAME NULL, 
    BlkBy SYSNAME NULL, 
    DBName SYSNAME NULL, 
    Command VARCHAR(32) NULL, 
    CPUTime INT NULL, 
    DiskIO INT NULL, 
    LastBatch VARCHAR(14) NULL, 
    ProgramName VARCHAR(32) NULL, 
    SPID2 INT 
) 

CREATE UNIQUE INDEX ui_SPID ON #sp_who3(SPID);
CREATE FULLTEXT CATALOG ft AS DEFAULT;
CREATE FULLTEXT INDEX ON #sp_who3(Command) 
   KEY INDEX ui_SPID 
   WITH STOPLIST = SYSTEM;

The CREATE FULLTEXT INDEX failed with: Invalid object name '#sp_who3'

The code above works if it's not a temp table. I'm betting if you can't do it with a temp table, you can't do it with a table variable, but I haven't tested that.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
