How to user Oracle text.


You should create oracle text index before using CONTAINS function.

SQL> CREATE INDEX idxName ON emp(ename) INDEXTYPE IS CTXSYS.CONTEXT
  2  /
Index created

SQL> select *  from emp where contains(ename,'MILLER')>0 and rownum < 2
  2  /

EMPNO ENAME      JOB         MGR HIREDATE          SAL      COMM DEPTNO
----- ---------- --------- ----- ----------- --------- --------- ------
 7934 MILLER     CLERK      7782 1/23/1982     1300.00               10


But, you got an "invalid identifier error", please mention your DB version, hopefully it is something which supports it. AFAIK, it was introduced back in 9i. If your DB version supports and without creating the index you should get following error :

SQL> drop index idxname;
Index dropped

SQL> select *  from emp where contains(ename,'MILLER')>0 and rownum < 2;
select *  from emp where contains(ename,'MILLER')>0 and rownum < 2
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-20000: Oracle Text error:
DRG-10599: column is not indexed

Again, "Facing some problem" is not an Oracle error. What exactly is the problem?

And did you do that:

  2  /
Index created

for the field you are using?

Which part of column is not indexed you don't understand? Keep in mind, we are talking about Oracle Text indexes.

  FROM  CTXSYS.CTX_PREFERENCES
  WHERE PRE_NAME = 'DEFAULT_LEXER';


and post results.

I just did a quick search with the error codes, and I got many responses in google, most of them are from OTN and OraFAQ. The typical resolutions are to run the post scripts properly.

Run the following to find out if Oracle Text is installed:

select  comp_name,
        status,
        version
  from  dba_registry
  where comp_id = 'CONTEXT'
/

@Duane,

Please don't get confused by so many replies to your original post, and for that matter I requested Michel to split the other topic of text search, as I believe it to be hijacked from rhe current discussion.

@Michel,

Sorry, but my most recent post was simultaneously posted after you splitted the hijacked topic. So, some of the previous messages are left here.

I understand the moderator bit stuff is sometimes quite tedious, unfortunately this one being one of them.

Yes it is not easy when messages are interleaved, above all when the topic is still going on, I did my best.
What I can advise is to continue to post Duane's original question related answers in the other topic (the original one, and maybe repost some if you think they are important).

Sure Michel, and yes both the topics are currently going on, unless OP comes with the feedback.

Thank you for your effort.

Apparently, you didn't run step 2 from the instructions in the installation link that you provided, to create the ctxsys.default_lexer:

Quote:

If you are working with US english texts, install appropriate language-specific default preferences:

connect CTXSYS/CTXSYS
@$ORAC1020.ctx.admin.drdefus;

If you are not working with US english texts, open the drdef*.sql script according to the preferred language, set the attribute (refer to Restrictions in the following section), and run the script.

@sss111ind,

Since this topic was split and it would not be easy for anybody to understand the resolution of your problem, would you mind to post what exactly you did to solve your issue. It would certainly help other folks searching for similar topic.

And of course, not to mention but just a reminder, you can mention the folks who helped you to resolve your issue alongwith the suggestion. It would be very good as forum ethics Smile

I suggest you post it step by step. Just like you would expect a solution for your issue.

Thanks.

Edit : Added a one liner at last to justify why I requested OP to come back with his feedback.
