full text search against multiple tables
Posted by: Tony Qian

I have a situation which needs to search multiple tables:

Let's say I have category, brand, and coupon tables.

category {category_id, category_name}
brand {brand_id, brand_name}
coupon {coupon_id, category_id, brand_id, coupon_detail}

my question is how to do a full text search if user just enters several words to search coupons. the words could be category name, brand name or words in coupon_details. The difficulty is you don't know which word is category name, which word is brand name. The words user entered might not contain category name or brand name.

any suggestions? does MySql full text search really supports multiple table search?

Thanks,
Tony
