MOSS 2007 Word breaker

  Asked By: Mercedes    Date: Apr 12    Category: MOSS    Views: 1674

We're having fits with the way that MOSS2007 search appears to have
changed behaviour compared to the Indexing Service 2.0. We used to be
able to search for terms with a decimal in them in Indexing Service
(i.e. "4000.364") just by tweaking the query a bit - I think so that it
was treated as a phrase like "4000 364". Now in MOSS2007 we can't seem
to do it.

Both are set up for English with stemming left off. We had removed
everything from the MSSearch noise word list, and we have just the
default 'enu' noise word list in MOSS.

Is the word breaker used by OSEARCH any different than the one used by
MSSearch? Is there a way to check? If it's the same, you'd think we'd be
able to tweak the query string to accommodate these searches. Is it
storing phrases differently?

The SDK has great documentation on protocol handlers, stemmers, and
Ifilters, but not on word  breakers.

I did find that MSSearch and OSearch both implement the word breaker
both at index time and a query time.

The only documentation I was able to find on how word  breakers work was
in the Indexing Services documentation at
