You are running an instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 on a Microsoft Windows 2000-based computer. When you run a full-text query that contains certain Japanese character strings in the search condition against the instance of SQL Server 2000, you may receive an error message that is similar to the following:
Server: Msg 7619, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Execution of a full-text operation failed. A clause of the query contained only ignored words.
This error message indicates that a clause of the query contains only ignored words. However, the query that you tried to run does contain valid words.
