FIX: SELECT with Outer Join and a GROUP BY Can GP-Fault Server

PSS ID Number: Q103679 Article last modified on 10-31-1994



The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft SQL Server version 4.2 for OS/2

BUG# OS/2: 1749 (4.2)


A SELECT statement with an OUTER JOIN and a GROUP BY involving two tables can cause a ring 3 trap with the following error message:

SYS1943: A Program Caused a Protection Violation.

  1. The first table should have three columns, at least two of which should be VARCHAR or CHAR.
  2. The first table should have at least 580 rows.
  3. The second table should have at least one CHAR and a FLOAT column and zero or more rows.
  4. There should be at least one outer join between the tables.
  5. The group by should contain a minimum of at least two CHAR or VARCHAR columns from the first table and the float column from second table.

NOTE: The error occurrence is data specific and cannot be reproduced through random set of data.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server version 4.2 for OS/2. This problem was corrected in SQL Server version 4.2bK15. For more information, contact your primary support provider.
