BUG #: 56034 (SQLBUG_70)


A handled access violation (AV) exception error occurs within an INSERT SELECT statement under the following conditions:

  • The statement contains a HAVING clause.
  • The statement contains a subquery.
  • The subquery contains a join.
  • The subquery contains a DATEADD function with a nested DATEDIFF function.


Instead of using the subquery in the INSERT SELECT statement, first use a SELECT INTO to place the results of the query in a temporary table and then use this temporary table with the INSERT SELECT statement.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 2 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
