To create a database, its files have to be defined:
CREATE DATABASE [MyDB] ON PRIMARY ( NAME = N'MyDB', FILENAME = N'D:\DATASQL\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\MyDB.mdf' , MAXSIZE = UNLIMITED, FILEGROWTH = 1024KB ) LOG ON ( NAME = N'MyDB_log', FILENAME = N'D:\DATASQL\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\MyDB_log.ldf' , MAXSIZE = 2048GB , FILEGROWTH = 10%) GO
Then to select it, it's either possible to set it at the beginning of the script:
USE MyDB; SELECT * FROM MyTable;
or to call all the objects with their full path. Eg:
SELECT * FROM [MyDB].[dbo].[MyTable];
