Error Message:
Msg 8145, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_dboption, Line 0
%.*ls is not a parameter for procedure %.*ls.

Severity level:

This error message appears when you try to use an invalid parameter for a system-supplied stored procedure.

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. SQL Server system-supplied stored procedures only except their fixed set of mandatory and optional parameters.

All versions of SQL Server.

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

In the above example we try to call the system procedure sp_dboption with the invalid parameter @updateusage. This raises the error.
