Msg 113, Level 15, State 1, Line 5
Missing end comment mark ‘*/’.

Severity level:
15.

Description:
This error message appears when for a potentially multi-lined comment /* no ending comment token */ was typed.

Consequences:
The SQL statement cannot be parsed and further execution is stopped.

Resolution:
Error of the severity level 16 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. In this case either the missing end comment token */ needs to be inserted at the appropriate place or the beginning comment token needs to be removed.

Versions:
All versions of SQL Server.

Example(s):
/*
SELECT *
  FROM Northwind.dbo.Orders
 WHERE OrderID = 10289

Remarks:
This should be a rather odd error, because most editors, like the SQL Server Management Studio, use different colors to highlight certain elements of Transact-SQL. When you type the beginning of a comment with a /* all following characters are colored in the comment-assigned color.
