    Unanswered: MDF without LDF?


    I tried to attach my MD and or work with the stored procedures but always it is complaining about the log file which is not able to create...

    I tried two options but none is working !!!
    EXEC sp_attach_db @dbname = N'AeXNS_Data',
    @filename1 = N'E:\AeXNS_Data.mdf',
    @Filename2 = N'F:\AeXNS_Log.LDF'
    Server: Msg 5105, Level 16, State 4, Line 1
    Device activation error. The physical file name 'F:\AeXNS_Log.LDF' may be incorrect.

    EXEC sp_attach_single_file_db @dbname = N'AeXNS_data',
    @physname = N'E:\AeXNS_Data.mdf'

    Server: Msg 1813, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
    Could not open new database 'AeXNS_data'. CREATE DATABASE is aborted.
    Device activation error. The physical file name 'F:\AeXNS_Log.LDF' may be incorrect.

    But there is no file with that name AeXNS_Log.LDF as I want to create it from scratch...

    Any ideas?

    have you tried explicitly dettaching use sp_dettach_db before using sp_attach_single_file_db?

But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.
