CREATE FULLTEXT STOPLIST (Transact-SQL)

Creates a new full-text stoplist in the current database.

Stopwords are managed in databases by using objects called stoplists. A stoplist is a list of stopwords that, when associated with a full-text index, is applied to full-text queries on that index. For more information, see Configure and Manage Stopwords and Stoplists for Full-Text Search.

Important note Important

CREATE FULLTEXT STOPLIST, ALTER FULLTEXT STOPLIST, and DROP FULLTEXT STOPLIST are supported only under compatibility level 100. Under compatibility levels 80 and 90, these statements are not supported. However, under all compatibility levels the system stoplist is automatically associated with new full-text indexes.

Applies to: SQL Server (SQL Server 2008 through current version).

CREATE FULLTEXT STOPLIST stoplist_name
[ FROM { [ database_name.]source_stoplist_name } | SYSTEM STOPLIST ]
[ AUTHORIZATION owner_name ]
;

stoplist_name

Is the name of the stoplist. stoplist_name can be a maximum of 128 characters. stoplist_name must be unique among all stoplists in the current database, and conform to the rules for identifiers.

stoplist_name will be used when the full-text index is created.

database_name

Is the name of the database where the stoplist specified by source_stoplist_name is located. If not specified, database_name defaults to the current database.

source_stoplist_name

Specifies that the new stoplist is created by copying an existing stoplist. If source_stoplist_name does not exist, or the database user does not have correct permissions, CREATE FULLTEXT STOPLIST fails with an error. If any languages specified in the stop words of the source stoplist are not registered in the current database, CREATE FULLTEXT STOPLIST succeeds, but warning(s) are returned and the corresponding stop words are not added.

SYSTEM STOPLIST

Specifies that the new stoplist is created from the stoplist that exists by default in the Resource database.

AUTHORIZATION owner_name

Specifies the name of a database principal to own of the stoplist. owner_name must either be the name of a principal of which the current user is a member, or the current user must have IMPERSONATE permission on owner_name. If not specified, ownership is given to the current user.

The creator of a stoplist is its owner.

To create a STOPLIST requires CREATE FULLTEXT CATALOG permissions. The stoplist owner can grant CONTROL permission explicitly on a stoplist to allow users to add and remove words and to drop the stoplist.

Note Note

Using a stoplist with a full-text index requires REFERENCE permission.

A. Creating a new full-text stoplist

The following example creates a new full-text stoplist named myStoplist.

CREATE FULLTEXT STOPLIST myStoplist;
GO

B. Copying a full-text stoplist from an existing full-text stoplist

The following example creates a new full-text stoplist named myStoplist2 by copying an existing AdventureWorks stoplist named Customers.otherStoplist.

CREATE FULLTEXT STOPLIST myStoplist2 FROM AdventureWorks.otherStoplist;
GO

C. Copying a full-text stoplist from the system full-text stoplist

The following example creates a new full-text stoplist named myStoplist3 by copying from the system stoplist.

CREATE FULLTEXT STOPLIST myStoplist3 FROM SYSTEM STOPLIST;
GO
