    If you're using the free trial version and are creating an Azure SQL Database, you may see charges if you exceed certain usage limits. Azure offers a free tier for SQL Databases, which includes 100,000 vCore seconds of compute and 32 GB of storage per month. However, there are some important points to keep in mind:

    1. The free tier allows for up to 100,000 vCore seconds of compute and 32 GB of storage each month. If your usage stays within these limits, you will not incur any charges.
    2. If your database usage exceeds the free limits, you can choose to either:
      • Auto-pause: The database will automatically pause until the next month, preventing any further charges but making the database inaccessible for the rest of the month.
      • Continue with Charges: If you need continuous access, you can opt to continue using the database, but you will be charged for any usage beyond the free limits+
    3. It’s important to monitor your usage to avoid unexpected charges. You can track your usage in the Azure portal and set up alerts to notify you when you are approaching your limits
    4. When creating the database, make sure to select the option for the free offer to ensure that you are using the available free tier benefits. If you do not select this option or have an existing database that isn't under the free offer, you might incur charges
