I have a table which contains 3 fields (ID, Title, Abstract) the title and abstract 
fields have been fulltext indexes like this:

ALTER TABLE biblio ADD FULLTEXT (title,abstract);

that worked fine, however my problem is whenever I want to do a select statement only 
comparing 1 of the columns to inputted data ( in a Select statement):

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM Biblio WHERE MATCH (title) AGAINST 

It gives me this error: Can't find FULLTEXT index matching the column list. It appears 
that i cant just compare a single fulltext indexed column if there are other fulltext 
indexed columns. When I try it with both columns then it works but I just want to 
compare 1 column. eg: 
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM Biblio WHERE MATCH (title, abstract) AGAINST 

So is there anyway that I can just compare 1 column with text entered? Do I have t 
make some sort of temporary table to do this? All the examples I have found show the 
select statement with 2 columns or if they use 1 coumn its because there is only 1 
column in their table.

Any help would be appreciated!
