I dont think you can create such index across tables. If you are interested read up on sphinx. Im pretty sure you would be able to create what you need.
Alternatively ... a super simplistic solution ..... create one extra search table with copy of the data and create index there? ;P hehehe + would let you do what you need - would require a lot more IO to support the extra writes (to keep copy in sync) It would be cool if a fulltext index could be created on a view :) Art On 21 October 2010 09:43, Ron Piggott <ron.pigg...@actsministries.org> wrote: > Is it possible to create one index on multiple tables?
