Hello,
I want to partition a table but am having problems with the partition creation

ALTER DATABASE Temp_DJJ ADD FILEGROUP MyTestFG;
GO
ALTER DATABASE Temp_DJJ ADD FILE (
    name = Test_ReadOnly1, 
    filename = 'C:\SQLData\MyTestFG.ndf', 
    size = 10mb, 
    maxsize = 200mb, 
    filegrowth = 5mb) TO FILEGROUP MyTestFG;
GO
-- Try for two partitions on prior to 6/1/12 and one after that.
CREATE PARTITION FUNCTION TestPF (DATETIME) AS RANGE LEFT FOR VALUES ('6/1/2012');
GO
CREATE PARTITION SCHEME TestIt AS PARTITION TestPF TO ([PRIMARY], MyTestFG);
GO
On the CREATE PARTITION SCHEME I get the error:
Msg 208, Level 16, State 58, Line 1
Invalid object name 'MyTestFG'.


Not to mention I am unclear how to associate the table.

So where did I go wrong?
Thanks

You have to create the partition function and scheme in the database - that may (or may not be the problem). Can you try this?:
ALTER DATABASE Temp_DJJ ADD FILEGROUP MyTestFG;
GO
ALTER DATABASE Temp_DJJ ADD FILE (
    name = Test_ReadOnly1, 
    filename = 'C:\Temp\MyTestFG.ndf', 
    size = 10mb, 
    maxsize = 200mb, 
    filegrowth = 5mb) TO FILEGROUP MyTestFG;
GO
USE Temp_DJJ
GO
-- Try for two partitions on prior to 6/1/12 and one after that.
CREATE PARTITION FUNCTION TestPF (DATETIME) AS RANGE LEFT FOR VALUES ('6/1/2012');
GO
CREATE PARTITION SCHEME TestIt AS PARTITION TestPF TO ([PRIMARY], MyTestFG);
GO

I knew it would be something simple. That worked.

Thank you!

Great!!

Now I can safely fess up! That was a wild guess based on the first sentence in this MSDN page which reads "Creates a function in the current database that maps..."
