Msg 2236, Level 16, State 1, Line 7
%sThere are not enough actual arguments in the call to function “%ls”.
This error message appears when in an XQuery not the required number of arguments is supplied for a particular function.
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 run this way. Each function call must be made with the required number of arguments for that function.
This error message was introduced with SQL Server 2005.
DECLARE @xml xml;
SET @xml = ‘<Result />’;
@xml.query (‘for $a in(1, 2), $b in(3, 4)
$a < $b
return max()’) as XML;
In the above example we try to call the max() function with no argument. This raises the error.
