Spell Check Setting

The SPELL feature supported in Search Server 4.0 has been changed. In the Advanced Search Settings view, if there is an entry named Spell Check with the value TRUE added, then the search engine will do an approximate search that can erase spelling mistakes. An example would be a search on Product with keyword Computar, which would return products with keyword Computer.

The approximate search feature (also known as fuzzy searching, or approximate term matching) makes it possible for Search Server 5.0 to find words in the table even if they are misspelled in the query. This feature is most useful for searches involving proper nouns, such as customers' searches for product names in an e-Commerce application.
