not sure which error that is exactly, but there are only this reasons I know of off the top of my hat:
* there is already a clustered index on that table
* there is at least 2 rows that have the same values for column1, column2 and column3
* there is not enough space to create the index, and/or autogrow of the database cannot increase fast enough ...
* there is already a index with the same columns in that order

Below is the excat error:
Server: Msg 8662, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
An index cannot be created on the view 'VW_RES_FA_T' because the view definition includes an unknown value (the sum of a nullable expression).

Actually i was creating index on view but just got to know that we can't craete index on a view.  If we have to create one, do we have option to create this on a view.  Thanks!
