SQL Server Error Messages - Errors 8001 to 8500

A message number uniquely identifies each error message and the error message text describes the problem.  The error message text often includes placeholders for information (such as object names) to be inserted in the error message when it is displayed.  Unfortunately, the error message text does not tell you how to solve or work around the problem.  In this series of Error Messages list, we will try to provide you with ways on how to overcome or work around certain error messages.

Some error messages are self-explanatory and can easily be fixed, such as "Invalid object name".  Others are harder to fix or work around, especially by those who are new to SQL Server.  It is the intent of this page and succeeding pages (to come) to assist you in addressing or working around SQL Server error messages.
