Hi Helen,

Ha-ha, we is "the Royal We". Only one connection to the database is trying
to do this. It is not a constraint, it is a named index created previously.

Is this "the Royal We" or are there actually more than one of you trying to
do this?

Check for other transactions still running, involving the table that the
index belongs to, and either commit them or roll them back.

If, on the other hand, the index is a constraint index, you can't drop
it. You'll have to find the name of the constraint and drop that.
