    Description:
    What does NOISEWORDFILTER in the server voyager.ini do?

    Resolution:
    NOISEWORDFILTER, or dynamic noise word reduction, improves the performance of keyword searches, particularly in large databases. It eliminates common words from a user's query for the purposes of searching but retains them for the purposes of relevance ranking.

    In the server-side voyager.ini file, NOISEWORDFILTER=Y will enable this feature (default setting is N). Dynamic noise word reduction uses these stop words:
    AND
    OR
    NOT
    OF
    IN
    THE
    WITH
    TO
    FOR
