The RANK BY Clause

Finally, there is the RANK BY clause. Ranking can be used to sort results on the basis of how frequently and where the queried strings appear in the indexed documents. In a nutshell, this is how Internet tools such as a search engine know how to sort the results. The basic syntax is

RANK BY <clause>(Mechanism, weight)

The value of the clause can be either WEIGHT or COERSION. The Mechanism refers to an action such as WEIGHT, MULTIPLY, or ABSOLUTE. The weight is the significance of the rank. See the Microsoft Exchange 2000 SDK for more information.
