    If this is for web based application then going with FTS is better provided the Server resources are pretty good enough to survive onthe pressure when this running.

    Hi
    I am not able to take decision by reading the articles sent by both of you.
    My Question is what decision you guys would have taken if you faced the same design problem ?

    How often your application connects to the database for this table data?
    What is the hardware configuration?
    What version of SQL you are using?>

    Hi
    1) Application frequently connects the table for data for both ( inserting new data and searching for existing data).
    2) hardware info is not known right now.
    3) SQL 2005
    Thanks

    Go with FULLTEXT search in thsi case based on the improvements within SQL 2005 version, before that ensure to refer the links on configuration too.
