Code: --in db1 context IF EXISTS (SELECT name FROM sysobjects WHERE name = 'test' AND type = 'P') DROP PROCEDURE dbo.test GO
CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.test AS --to create db if not existing IF NOT EXISTS (select name from [master].dbo.sysdatabases where name = 'db2') CREATE DATABASE db2 /* if tabl1 exists in db1 then it is copied into db2 and dropped frm db1 */ IF EXISTS (SELECT name FROM sysobjects WHERE name = 'tabl1' and xtype='U') BEGIN SELECT * INTO [db2].dbo.tabl1 FROM tabl1 DROP TABLE tabl1 print 'dropped table' END
When I try to execute this, I get the following error msg:
Server: Msg 2702, Level 16, State 2, Procedure test, Line 10 Database 'db2' does not exist.
How do I get this working?
