Sqlserver 2008 geometry datatype not included? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just installed MS Sqlserver 2008 aka katmai. this version was said to support the geometry datatype (GIS)

     

    but when I try to do the folowing i get an error

    CREATE TABLE MULTINET (

    GEOM GEOMETRY);

     

    Msg 2715, Level 16, State 7, Line 1

    Column, parameter, or variable #1: Cannot find data type GEOMETRY.

     

     

    My version is 10.0.1049

     

    so my question is does this version already support the geometry datatype or what am i doing wrong

     

    Thanks for your support

  • Hi,

     

    Alas, spatial is not yet available publically, but will be in the upcoming CTP.

  • Strange---I don't know why this thread has popped to the top of the stack, but I just want to make it clear to anyone just tuning in that spatial has been released at this point.  It is available in the November CTP.

     

    Enjoy,
