I need to run a checkdb on an MSDE database.  I'm logged into the server running MSDE as an Administrator and typed the following at the command prompt:

c:\osql -E -d Mydb

and get the following error:

Cannot open database requested in login 'Mydb'.  Login Fails.

If I type in c:\osql -E
I get the >1
Then I type in the following, but nothing happens:
 >1 use Mydb
>2  dbcc checkdb

Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Hi drees727,

You just need to add the GO keyword after each command:

If I type in c:\osql -E
I get the >1
Then I type in the following, but nothing happens:
 >1 use Mydb
>2 GO
>1 dbcc checkdb
>2 GO
>1

Thanks.  I just realized my database name has a space 'My db'.  If I use:

use 'My db'
or
use "My db"
or
use ('My db')

I get an incorrect syntax error.
