Raising errors in pre-scripts to abort the generation proces

Is it possible to raise errors in the pre-scripts that will abort the generation process?

I've tried using RAISERROR but the text is just printed in the generation report.

    Hi Steve,

    It all depends on the severify level of your error. If you raise your between between 11 and 16 then we will stop generation. Any errors below are just information, as such we output the error but continue.

    You can find out more information on MSDN - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa937483(SQL.80).aspx

    For example, this will stop generation:
    RAISERROR('Stop Generation',12,1)

    Where as, this will just output a message:
    RAISERROR('This is just some information',1,1)

    I hope this helps.
