Windows CE .NET

This function creates a new database in the object store or in a mounted database volume, or of the object store. Use CREATE_SYSTEMGUID to obtain the GUID of the object store.

CEOID CeCreateDatabaseEx2( 
  PCEGUID pguid, 


[in] Pointer to the CEGUID that contains the globally unique identifier of a mounted database.
[in] Pointer to the CEDBASEINFOEX structure that determines the name, type, sort orders, and characteristics of the database.

Return Values

The object identifier of the newly created database indicates success. NULL indicates failure. To get extended error information, call GetLastError. The following table lists possible values for GetLastError.

Value Description
ERROR_DISK_FULL Indicates that the destination source does not contain enough space to create the new database.
ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER Indicates that a parameter was invalid.
ERROR_DUP_NAME Indicates that a database already exists with the specified name.


Because sort orders increase the system resources needed to perform each insert and delete operation, you should keep the number of sort orders to a minimum. Use the CeSetDatabaseInfoEx2 function to change the sort order later.

A CEGUID and CEOID together uniquely identify a record or database in a database volume or in the object store.
