Sorry to say that you are basically screwed since you have no backups. Your only option is to run DBCC CHECKDB or CHECKTABLE with one of the repair options, probably REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS which does exactly what you it says, it fixes the corruption, but you will most likely lose data. Check out Paul Randal's blog and look at the CHECKDB and Corruption tags.

And I was actually questioned about why I would bother posting today's editorial.

Why aren't you taking backups of the system?

Why on earth is there no backup?

Please run this and post the full and complete output.

DBCC CHECKDB (<Database Name>Wink WITH NO_INFOMSGS, ALL_ERRORMSGS



Without a database backup, the database cannot be recovered from the log file alone. The log file does not necessarily contain the record of all changes made to the DB, especially if the DB is in simple recovery or there has never been a backup made.

After attaching the user databases in the server, i will apply the some data patches and fixes application related, after completing this process only i will take the backup of the database.But unfortunately after completing this data patches and fixes database got corrupted.

And previous backups? You know, the ones you've been taking on a daily or weekly basis since you became responsible for this database?

Those steps 'should not' corrupt the database.

Can you post the output from running CHECKDB ?

Take a backup before, take a backup after, heck, depending on how extensive the number of changes you're performing, take a backup in the middle. If you're mucking with production data, it's difficult to be overly paranoid.
