cannot drop statistics in sql server
Posted on 2010-08-21
I have a problem deleting one of the statistics in the table.
when i script
if exists (select * from sys.stats where name = N'inx_add_1' and object_id = object_id(N'[dbo].[Call_Details_]'))
DROP STATISTICS [dbo].[Call_Details_].[inx_add_1]
then get an error below
Msg 3739, Level 11, State 1, Line 3
Cannot DROP the index 'dbo.Call_Details_.inx_add_1' because it is not a statistics collection.
any idea why is this happening, and when i right click on the stats name the "script statistics as" is grayed out by default. any idea friends....
