Based on your description, it sounds like you are in an EBSCOhost database, such as Academic Search Complete. What you saw indicates that that article is not available full-text in that database. To eliminate all (or most) of the non-full-text articles from your search results, check the full-text box on the search screen (this limiter can also be found on the results screen). Many databases offer an option to limit results to full-text.
