A visa does not automatically give you the right to enter the Schengen area. There is always an entry control at the external border. You must be able to prove the purpose of your trip at the border and it is therefore advisable to bring copies of the documents you submitted with your application. The purpose of the trip should correspond with the purpose stated in your application. The control at the border may lead to you being refused entry.
If you apply for a visa a second time, the visa officer checks how you used your last visa.
