I am new to sql server.  I was adding records to tables and was disableing the indentity feature so that it would us the the keys that were already created.  I did something and now I get the error message about usage stats.  Now anytime I try to add or change a record, I get the error message.  Did I enable statistics somehow without adding the table to handle it?  How do I get rid of this?
Thanks

Sounds like you have.  If you are wanting to insert values into a table with an IDENTITY column, you should look at SET IDENTITY_INSERT <tablename> ON.  This will allow you to specify your own identity values when using an INSERT statement.

I dont have any problem turning the identity on or off.  The problem is that now anything I do with any of the tables causes the "usagestats" error.  What are usage stats and how do I turn them off? (if that is what I need to do).
Thanks

OK, take a look at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175075.aspx.  It does warn that you can end up with issues if you remove statistics incorrectly, so maybe that is what happened in a round about way.

From what I know, statistics are always on as it is what SQL server uses to determine the best execution plan, etc.

Sorry, I may be looking at this the wrong way.  Everytime I do anything with the tables, its looking for and enry in the sysdatabase called "usagestats",  maybe all I need to do is create that.  Does that seem logical and how would I create this since everytime I do anything I get the error.  sounds like a catch 22
