Major Languages and Minor Knowledge Base Keywords

Each Knowledge Base article in the languages collection may contain one or more product-specific keyword (called KBKeyword) that places the article in the appropriate category. Some of the Knowledge Base keywords are composed of the resulting concatenation of a major topic keyword and a minor topic keyword. For example, you can find all of the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) issue articles when you use MfcDatabase as the keyword in your search. In some cases, you can use the asterisk (*) wildcard search function to find articles that fall into the general subcategory. In addition, to find all of the articles that apply to MFC issues, query on Mfc*. An article usually has only one Knowledge Base keyword but it can have more.

The following table lists the topics in the Knowledge Base and their corresponding Knowledge Base keywords. The minor topics are in the indented list under each major topic.
