Warning message after MS SQL database corruption

A warning error message while accessing the records stored in your MS SQL database occurs when the database is corrupted or there is a possibility of database being corrupted. While it is advisable not to access your data after any warning message, most of the database users tend to ignore such error messages. The best way to resolve all the warning messages is by using the restoring the database records from most recently valid database backup. But if in case, the database backup is not available or backup falls short to restore the database, then you should opt for advance third-party SQL Recovery tools that can repair your corrupted database.

Consider a practical scenario, where you encounter the below error message each time you attempt to access your SQL database components:

Warning: Page P_ID, slot S_ID in Object O_ID Index I_ID Column COLUMN_NAME value COLUMN_VALUE is out of range for data type "DATATYPE". Update column to a legal value.

Note: Frequent occurrence of the above error message might corrupt your database to a large extent, making it totally unrepairable.


The above error message occurs when the column specified contains an illegal value. This occurs when your database gets corrupted due to logical or physical factors.


For complete resolution of the above warning error message and repair of corrupted database, you will need to follow the below steps:

In case of corruption due hardware failure, examine the Microsoft Windows system and application logs. These logs help you determine the damaged hardware. Swap the damaged hardware with a completely new hardware component.
For logical corruption scenarios, you will need to run DBCC CHECKDB command (with recommended repair clause) to repair your database.

In most situations, the warning message does not appear after taking the above steps. However, if the warning message persists, then you will need to search for a professional SQL Repair software. Such SQL Database Recovery software completely repair your database by using intensive scanning methods. The software comes with an installation guide that guides you through an easy to understand database repair procedure.
