How long is a piece of string? :)

Certainly the external option may be of more use than expecting the
database to do it ;)

In my own case, I have two options.
The one that costs some money is the Full Text Search provided by
IBObjects. This combines triggers and scripts to provide a very nice
flexible search system which can be configured for your particular
requirements - built into the database.

The one I am actually using is part of TikiPro, and allows searching
from text that is not just in the database! The database stores links to
external files as well, and these are scanned and indexed in addition to
the internal memo fields.

Hence the "How long is a piece of string?" - there are as many solutions
as there are requirements. So what are you actually looking for?
