How to create SQL database (mdf - file) & log file

I am running Oracle-SQL Server 8 Personal.   I want to create sql database and log file for specified location {drive:/path}. What is the procedure, method of this database creation.

I don't have any Windows based application for that.

The following comment is not working properly {Error at line No. 2 {Invalid procedure call "ON"}

/----------------------------------------------
CREATE DATABASE Sales
ON
(NAME = Sales_dat,
FILENAME = 'c:\mssql7\data\saledat.mdf',
SIZE = 10,
MAXSIZE = 50,
FILEGROWTH = 5 )
LOG ON
( NAME = 'Sales_log',
FILENAME = 'c:\mssql7\data\salelog.ldf',
SIZE = 5MB,
MAXSIZE = 25MB,
FILEGROWTH = 5MB )
/----------------------------------------------

[Note : please give me any e.g. And it's very urgent]

What do you have to create database?
If you have isql or osql utilities, the path by default C:\MSSQL7\BINN,
you can create database by running the following statement from the
command prompt (you can put the create database statement
into sql file and run this file from the command prompt):

osql -U sa -P -i c:\CreateDb.sql


Where CreateDb.sql contains the following:

CREATE DATABASE Sales
ON
(NAME = Sales_dat,
FILENAME = 'c:\mssql7\data\saledat.mdf',
SIZE = 10,
MAXSIZE = 50,
FILEGROWTH = 5 )
LOG ON
( NAME = 'Sales_log',
FILENAME = 'c:\mssql7\data\salelog.ldf',
SIZE = 5MB,
MAXSIZE = 25MB,
FILEGROWTH = 5MB )


Hope this helps

Are you using M$ SQL Server, or Oracle Server? i ask because of the version 8. SQL Server 2000 indicates is internal version as 8, but the name Personal is rather Oracle. On the other hand, mdf and ldf files is really SQL Server?

I assume that you use SQL server 2000...
Using the Query Analyser, you can simply issue this "query":
CREATE DATABASE YourDatabaseName;

This will create a database, with a mdf file and a ldf file in the default location and with default names.
For more precise indications, you should look up the CREATE DATABASE statement in the Books Online (BOL)

Using the Enterprise Manager, you can simply right-click the Databases folder, and choose "Create New Database".
Finally, in the tools menu, you could use the Create Database Wizard...

As i thought: sunifnb, you are speaking of ORACLE, and this is currently the MS SQL Server topic area!

Now in oracle, the creation of a database is not as simply as in SQL Server, and depends furthermore from the OS You are using.

I think you are trying to use a MSSQL Server Syntax on Oracle Server, where the ON clause is invalid...

I suggest that you post your question rather in the Oracle topic area.

If you are trying to create a database in oracle the create database statement would be something of this sort.


CREATE DATABASE db_name
DATAFILE 'phys_file_name' SIZE 10M AUTOEXTEND ON NEXT 2M
LOGFILE 'logfilename1','logfilename2';

Note that this is just the create database statement. There are several other steps involved like creating an instance running scripts for creating data dictionary tables, createing additional tablespaces and rollback segments and so on...

I would suggest you get a dba's help.

If you have db assistant you can create a database very easily in oralce.

Note that you should include the sizing paramaters for the log files too in the create database statement.
