Partition creation problem.

Partition creation problem.

(OP)
Hello, SQL2008R2
I want to partition a table but am having problems with the partition creation

CODE

ALTER DATABASE Temp_DJJ ADD FILEGROUP MyTestFG;
GO
ALTER DATABASE Temp_DJJ ADD FILE (
    name = Test_ReadOnly1, 
    filename = 'C:\SQLData\MyTestFG.ndf', 
    size = 10mb, 
    maxsize = 200mb, 
    filegrowth = 5mb) TO FILEGROUP MyTestFG;
GO
-- Try for two partitions on prior to 6/1/12 and one after that.
CREATE PARTITION FUNCTION TestPF (DATETIME) AS RANGE LEFT FOR VALUES ('6/1/2012');
GO
CREATE PARTITION SCHEME TestIt AS PARTITION TestPF TO ([PRIMARY], MyTestFG);
GO 
To which I get the error:
Msg 208, Level 16, State 58, Line 1
Invalid object name 'MyTestFG'.



Not to mention I am unclear how to associate the table say MyTable.

So where did I go wrong? Thanks

Posted in another forum and got the answer.

I needed to be in the database when creating the function/scheme.
