Error 1809



Message text

CREATE DATABASE must be preceded by a 'USE master' command. Check with your DBO <or a user with System Administrator (SA) role> if you do not have permission to USE master.


This error occurs when you try to create a new database without being in the master database.


Before issuing a create database command, be sure you are in master:

1> use master
2> go

If you do not have the necessary permissions to create a database, ask your Sybase System Administrator to grant you permission to use the create database command.
