When indexing text for the ProjectWise processor FTR (Full Text Retrieval), we have all heard about the “ignored” words such as ‘and’, ‘as’ and ‘the’. In case you are curious, here is a fairly complete list of the words that the Microsoft Indexing catalog will exclude:
A - about after all also an and another any are as aB - be because been before being between both but byC - came can come couldD - did do doesE - each elseF - for fromG - get gotH - had has have he her here him himself his howI - if in into is it itsJ - justL - likeM - make many me might more most much must myN - never no nowO - of on only or other our out overR - reS - said same see since should so some still suchT - take than that the their them then there these they this those through to tooU - under useV - veryW - want was way we well were what when where which while who will with wouldY - you your
In addition, individual letters and numbers will also be ignored. Interestingly, adding a suffix to these words will get indexed. For example, “get” is ignored, but “getting” is returned.
