Msg 6324, Level 15, State 1, Line 4
DROP XML INDEX does not support any options.
This error message appears when you try to specify any option for dropping an XML index.
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.
Error of the Severity level 15 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be run this way. Remove the options from the DROP INDEX statement.
This error message was introduced with SQL Server 2005.
IF OBJECT_ID (‘dbo.t’) IS NOT NULL
DROP TABLE dbo.t;
CREATE TABLE dbo.t
c1 int PRIMARY KEY,
CREATE PRIMARY XML INDEX IX_XML_t ON dbo.t(xml1);
DROP INDEX IX_XML_t ON dbo.t WITH (ONLINE = ON);
In the above example we try to drop an XML index while specifying the ONLINE = ON option. This raises the error.
