Either the label or the value are wrong when the Windows Event log error messages are displayed in SQL Log Viewer.  The Level value has the label "Severity".

Hello Guyo,

In your repro you call RaiseError(50001,1,2). The 2nd and 3rd arguments are severity and state. The docs ( state:

    When using msg_id to raise a user-defined message created using sp_addmessage, the severity specified on RAISERROR
    overrides the severity specified in sp_addmessage.

You state that the output you see in the event log is:

    Error: 50001 Severity: 1 State:2

This seems to match the documented behavior. Can you please comment further?
