    No results displayed !!!


      I use Ultrasearch on windows XP.
      I configured the tool and indexed some html documents. You can see below on document that I have indexed.
      I received no errors, but when I tried to use
      and I search a word that is existing in the document, I have no results displayed.

      I checked the tables and the only tables that contain some datas are:

      What can I check to be able to have a result displayed ?
      Does anybody have an idea ?

      Thank you in advance for your answers.

          The indexed documents are listed in WK$DOC. If some documents are only listed in WK$URL there was a problem (e.g. timeout, the document was a directory, ...).

          To find out what is the problem you can check the status with the following query:

          select status, count(*) from wk$url group by status;

          If status = 200 is ok. If not, via the admin GUI (Crawler Statistics) you can see a summary with a "description" of the problem (number of documents for each status).

          • 2. Re: No results displayed !!!
            Yeah, but what should I do if all documents have status=200 but still the results does not display all documents containing the string I searched? this is happening to me, and I really don't know US does not display all documents, just a part of them.

              Hi guys,

              I'm just wondering if you got a solution for this? I have the same problem.
              I've installed UltraSearch and am using the API to perform searches..
              No results are coming out.

              there are lots of documents in the wk$url table where status = '200'

              But what ever text I search for, I get nothing...
              Please help.

              Thanks heaps,

              My java class that talks to the UltraSearch API is:

              • 4. Re: No results displayed !!!

                I made one small change to your code in order to make it work for me:
                I removed the setDocLanguage() call, as it tries to filter the results by document language.
                Now it works fine.

                Best regards,
