The object ‘%.*ls’ does not exist or is invalid for this operation.
This error message appears when you try to execute an operation for a non-existant object or the operation is invalid for this type of object.
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. The object must exist and the operation must be valid for this type of object.
All versions of SQL Server.
IF OBJECT_ID(‘tempdb..t’) > 0
DROP TABLE t
CREATE TABLE t
CREATE TRIGGER dbo.tt ON ta
SET NOCOUNT ON;
IF @@ROWCOUNT > 0
In the above example we try to create a trigger for the table ta. Because this table does not exist, the error is raised.
