Missing end comment mark '*/'.

Anybody knows why I am getting the error in Query Analyzer?
Below I pasted executed code:


SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL SERIALIZABLE
SET ARITHABORT ON
SET NUMERIC_ROUNDABORT OFF
SET CONCAT_NULL_YIELDS_NULL ON
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
SET ANSI_PADDING ON
SET ANSI_WARNINGS ON

/*
BEGIN TRANSACTION
ALTER TABLE dbo.table_name
      DROP CONSTRAINT DF_table_name_column_name
GO
COMMIT
*/

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try it this way (lose the GO):

SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL SERIALIZABLE
SET ARITHABORT ON
SET NUMERIC_ROUNDABORT OFF
SET CONCAT_NULL_YIELDS_NULL ON
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
SET ANSI_PADDING ON
SET ANSI_WARNINGS ON

/*
BEGIN TRANSACTION
ALTER TABLE dbo.table_name
     DROP CONSTRAINT DF_table_name_column_name
COMMIT
*/

Or:

SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL SERIALIZABLE
SET ARITHABORT ON
SET NUMERIC_ROUNDABORT OFF
SET CONCAT_NULL_YIELDS_NULL ON
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
SET ANSI_PADDING ON
SET ANSI_WARNINGS ON

/*
BEGIN TRANSACTION
ALTER TABLE dbo.table_name
     DROP CONSTRAINT DF_table_name_column_name
-- GO
COMMIT
*/
