TSQL : Partitioning an existing table

A few months back I published  SQL 2005 / 2008 : Table Partitioning - Run through , just enough notes to get Partitioning up and running (on SQL Enterprise / Developer editions).

What I forgot to post was how to move existing tables to the partition -

This is achieved easily i.e. by adding a clustered index that uses the partition scheme -

USE TestDB;
GO
--- Step 8 : (Optional/Recommended) Create Index on Partitioned Table
CREATE UNIQUE CLUSTERED INDEX IX_TestTable
ON TestTable(ID)
ON TestDB_PartitionScheme (ID);
GO
