    Hi Muthusankari ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A platform and thanks for posting your question here.

    As I am trying to understand your question, it seems you want to find a way to create database in azure datalake storage and tables within it. However, it doesn't seem to be feasible.

    ADLS Gen2 includes most of the features from both ADLS Gen1 and Azure Blob storage, including:

    • Limitless storage capacity
    • Azure Active Directory (AAD) integration
    • Hierarchical File System (HFS)
    • Read-access geo-redundant storage
    • 5 TB file size limit
    • Blob tiers (Hot, Cool, Archive)

    However, if you want to create database and table within , either you should opt for Azure SQL database, or check Azure Synapse capabilities to leverage Lake database .

    If this doesn't answer your question, kindly share some more details on what you are trying to achieve by posting screenshot or sample snippet. Thankyou.

    Hope it helps. Please do consider clicking Accept Answer and Up-Vote for the same as accepted answers help community as well.
