On a database that contains full-text indexes, when you generate a database creation script that includes those full-text indexes, attempts to run that script for database creation may fail.


The full-text indexes are scripted before the regular table indexes. Due to this incorrect scripting order, the full-text index creation fails because the table index used by the full-text index has not yet been created.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for SQL Server 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
290211 INF: How to Obtain the Latest SQL Server 2000 Service Pack
IMPORTANT: When you apply the latest SQL Server 2000 service pack to correct the problem, you must apply the service pack to both the server and the client.


In the script, manually move the full-text index creation statements so that they occur after the regular table index creation statements.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in SQL Server 2000. This problem was first corrected in SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 1.
