Msg 8665, Level 16, State 0, Line 2
Cannot create the clustered index “%.*ls” on view “%.*ls” because no row can satisfy the view definition. Consider eliminating contradictions from the view definition.
This error message appears when you try to create a clustered index on a view, but no row can satisfy the view definition.
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.
Error of the Severity level 16 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be run this way. Rewrite the view definition to eliminate contradictions.
This error message was introduced with SQL Server 2000.
SET NUMERIC_ROUNDABORT OFF;
IF OBJECT_ID (‘dbo.v’, ‘View’) IS NOT NULL
DROP VIEW dbo.v;
IF OBJECT_ID(‘dbo.t’) IS NOT NULL
DROP TABLE dbo.t;
CREATE TABLE dbo.t
c1 int NOT NULL
CREATE VIEW dbo.v
c1, COUNT_BIG(*) AS MyCount
1 = 0
CREATE UNIQUE CLUSTERED INDEX cix_v
ON dbo.v (c1);
In the above example we try to create an index on a view. Since no row can satisfy the WHERE clause in the view definition, the error is raised.
