Error when executing the procedure

    Nice script. While running this proc during a particular index rebuild, I get the following error:

    ---

    Msg 536, Level 16, State 5, Procedure dba_WhatSQLIsExecuting, Line 17

    Invalid length parameter passed to the SUBSTRING function.

    ---

    The sql I was running was:

    ---

    USE [BI_DW]

    GO

    /****** Object: Index [idx_FXT_WHSE] Script Date: 10/28/2008 07:29:21 ******/

    IF EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sys.indexes WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].[fact_Forecast]') AND name = N'idx_FXT_WHSE')

    DROP INDEX [idx_FXT_WHSE] ON [dbo].[fact_Forecast] WITH ( ONLINE = OFF )

    /****** Object: Index [idx_FXT_WHSE] Script Date: 10/28/2008 07:29:39 ******/

    CREATE NONCLUSTERED INDEX [idx_FXT_WHSE] ON [dbo].[fact_Forecast]

    (

    [WAREHOUSE_KEY] ASC

    )WITH (PAD_INDEX = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF, SORT_IN_TEMPDB = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, DROP_EXISTING = OFF, ONLINE = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = OFF) ON [PRIMARY]

    ---

    If I comment out the column with the substring, the procedure runs again. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    i was using this sql in prod environment.

    i also got the same error

    invalid length error in substring.

    i gave a try catch block inside the sp.

    why this error comes ?
