Hello All,

I am working on MySQL server 5.0.
I have created a table using command
 CREATE TABLE geom (g GEOMETRY NOT NULL);

Now I want to create spatial index on column 'g' using command.
 CREATE SPATIAL INDEX sp_index ON geom (g);

It gives me following error -
"ERROR 1464 (HY000): The used table type doesn't support SPATIAL indexes"

Please give me some information about this problem.

Thanks in advance,
Regards,
dAshish

your table is probably on InnoDB, which does not support spatial index.

move the table to MyISAM:

CREATE TABLE geom (g GEOMETRY NOT NULL) ENGINE=MyISAM;

Open in new window
