SQL – Simple way to return messages at runtime instead of using PRINT

Care of David Poole of SQLServerCentral: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/Documentation/72473/



RAISERROR ( ‘DATA DICTIONARY: %i tables & %i fields added’, 10, 1,

    @TableCount, @FieldCount ) WITH NOWAIT

The “10” parameter is the SEVERITY of the error message raised.

10 : this is more of a notice message, or minor alert

16 : this is reserved for true error messages
