Returns a list of tables that are registered for full-text indexing.
This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. Use sys.fulltext_indexes catalog view instead. For more information, see sys.fulltext_indexes (Transact-SQL).
sp_help_fulltext_tables [ [ @fulltext_catalog_name = ] 'fulltext_catalog_name' ] [ , [ @table_name = ] 'table_name' ]
[ @fulltext_catalog_name=] 'fulltext_catalog_name'
Is the name of the full-text catalog. fulltext_catalog_name is sysname, with a default of NULL. If fulltext_catalog_name is omitted or is NULL, all full-text indexed tables associated with the database are returned. If fulltext_catalog_name is specified, but table_name is omitted or is NULL, the full-text index information is retrieved for every full-text indexed table associated with this catalog. If both fulltext_catalog_name and table_name are specified, a row is returned if table_name is associated with fulltext_catalog_name; otherwise, an error is raised.
[ @table_name=] 'table_name'
Is the one- or two-part table name for which the full-text metadata is requested. table_name is nvarchar(517), with a default value of NULL. If only table_name is specified, only the row relevant to table_name is returned.
