FT_INDEX_SUMMARY_ONLY     -  Index summary data only.

FT_INDEX_ATT_BINARY   -  Index all attachments including BINARY formats.

Description :

These values define the options used when creating a full text index for a database. These options may be combined by bitwise OR-ing them together. However, FT_INDEX_AUTOOPTIONS will ignore all other indexing options and therefore should not be OR-ed with any of the other indexing options.
