SQL Statements and Operators, 8 of 8
Use the SCORE operator in a SELECT statement to return the score values produced by a CONTAINS query.
Specify a number to identify the score produced by the query. You use this number to identify the score in the CONTAINS clause.
The SCORE operator can be used in a SELECT, ORDER BY, or GROUP BY clause.
When the SCORE operator is called (e.g. in a SELECT clause), the CONTAINS clause must reference the score label value as in the following example:
Assume that a news database stores and indexes the title and body of news articles separately. The following query returns all the documents that include the words Oracle in their title and java in their body. The articles are sorted by the scores for the first CONTAINS (Oracle) and then by the scores for the second CONTAINS (java).
SELECT title, body, SCORE(10), SCORE(20)
