Msg 6332, Level 16, State 201, Line 1
Table ‘%.*ls’ needs to have a clustered primary key with less than %d columns in it in order to create a primary XML index on it.
This error message appears when you try to create a XML index for a table that does not have a clustered primary key with less than 16 columns.
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. You can create only XML indices on a table with a clustered primary key.
This error message was introduced with SQL Server 2005.
IF OBJECT_ID(‘tempdb..#t’) > 0
DROP TABLE #t
CREATE TABLE #t
CREATE PRIMARY XML INDEX IX_XML_t_c1
In the above example we try to create a XML index on the table #t. Because this table does not have a clustered primary key, the error is raised.
