Dynamics CRM 2016: Generic SQL Error searching for contacts


In CRM when searching for a contact via quick find or on a lookup control, a Generic SQL error pop’s up.


A column was recently added to the quick find view to enable users to search on that field when searching for contacts. This introduced the Generic SQL error behavior which required tracing to find the real issue.

Tracing Log

Exception when executing query: WITH __QuickFind__ as (select top 10001 [ContactId] from (

SELECT “contact0”.[Key] AS [ContactId] FROM ContainsTable([ContactBase], ( EMailAddress2, MobilePhone, LastName, FullName, FirstName, EMailAddress1), ‘(((“test*” OR FORMSOF(FREETEXT, “test”))) OR (“*test”))’) AS “contact0”) as [__QuickFindInternal__])

Exception: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException (0x80131904): Full-text table or indexed view has more than one LCID among its full-text indexed columns.

The Fix

Log on the SQL server, open the Dynamics CRM database and follow this steps:

  • Navigate to the Contact table
  • Left click on the table
  • Navigate to Full-text index
  • Click on properties
  • Select Columns
    •  Make sure the Language for Word Breaker is the same.
