Msg 2377, Level 16, State 1, Line 4
%sResult of ‘%ls’ expression is statically ’empty’
This error message appears when in an Xquery the result of a for expression is statically empty.
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. The result of a for expression must contain 1 static member at least.
This error message was introduced with SQL Server 2005.
DECLARE @xml xml;
SET @xml = ”;
@xml.query(‘for $a in(1, 2, 3), $b in (2, 3, 4), $c in ()
$a lt $b
return sum($a + $b)’) as XML;
In the above example we try to specify the for expression $c in (). This expression does not contain any static member and this raises the error.
