Cannot drop XML Index ‘%.*ls’ using old ‘Table.Index’ syntax, use ‘Index ON Table’ syntax instead.

Error Message:
Msg 3749, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Cannot drop XML Index ‘%.*ls’ using old ‘Table.Index’ syntax, use ‘Index ON Table’ syntax instead.

Severity level:
16.

Description:
This error message appears when you try to drop a XML index via the DROP INDEX tablename.indexname statement.

Consequences:
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.

Resolution:
Errors of the Severity Level 16 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be executed this way. You should use the new DROP INDEX indexname ON tablename statement to drop a XML index.

Versions:
This error message was introduced with SQL Server 2005.

Example(s):
USE tempdb;
GO
IF OBJECT_ID(‘tempdb..#t’) > 0
 DROP TABLE #t
GO
CREATE TABLE #t
(
 id INT NOT NULL,
 c1 XML
)
GO
ALTER TABLE #t
  ADD CONSTRAINT PK_t PRIMARY KEY(id)
GO
CREATE PRIMARY XML INDEX IX_XML_t_c1
    ON #t(c1);
GO
DROP INDEX #t.IX_XML_t_c1

Remarks:
In the above example we try to drop the XML index via DROP INDEX tablename.indexname. This raises the error.
