Severity level:

This error message appears when you try to use an invalid option for the @updateusage parameter of the sp_spaceused procedure.

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

All versions of SQL Server.

USE Northwind;
EXEC sp_spaceused @objname = N’Northwind’, @updateusage = ‘TREU’

in the above example we try to execute the sp_spaceused procedure with the invalid value “TREU* for the @updateusage parameter. This raises the error.
