IF DB_ID (N’MyExample’) > 0
DROP DATABASE MyExample;
CREATE DATABASE MyExample
( NAME = MyExample_Data,
FILENAME = ‘E:MyExample_Data.mdf’,
SIZE = 0,
MAXSIZE = 50,
FILEGROWTH = 15% )
( NAME = MyExample_Log,
FILENAME = ‘E:MyExample_Log.ldf’,
SIZE = 5MB,
MAXSIZE = 25MB,
FILEGROWTH = 5MB );
In the above example we try to create a database with the size of 0 for the data file. This raises the error.
