Msg 6334, Level 16, State 201, Line 1
Could not create XML index on object ‘%.*ls’ because that object is not a table.
This error message appears when you try to create a XML index on an object, which is not a table.
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.
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. XML indices can only be created on objects of the table type.
This error message was introduced with SQL Server 2005.
IF OBJECT_ID(‘dbo.MyDate’, ‘function’) > 0
DROP FUNCTION dbo.MyDate
CREATE FUNCTION dbo.MyDate()
WITH EXECUTE AS CALLER
CREATE PRIMARY XML INDEX IX_XML_t_c1
In the above example we try to create a XML index on the user-defined function MyDate. This raises the error.
