I do have the 2008 BOL on my desktop. CREATE INDEX is OK, but it's wrong in the "Implementing Indexes" section of "Designing and Implementing Structured Storage".
Likewise. I have the January 2009 edition of the SQL Server 2008 BOL. In the section titled "Index Creation Tasks"
(local URL: ms-help://MS.SQLCC.v10/MS.SQLSVR.v10.en/s10de_1devconc/html/b182c8be-581e-4ec8-86d2-31557ee05b25.htm)
it still states the SQL Server 2005 values.
Interesting, the entire section has been eliminated/reworked in the February, 2009 edition -- which is only available online at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms180857.aspx
Edit: It is still wrong there: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190197.aspx
So depending upon what Microsoft material you reference, there are two different answers. However, the value 250 (1 clustered and 249 nonclustered) was NOT one of the answers. So if you responded 249 you are still wrong.
