BUG #: 55690 (SQLBUG_70)


A specific query involving an inner join with multiple search clauses and a HAVING clause has been found to run slower on SQL Server 7.0 after Service Pack 1 was installed.


The workaround in this case was to reduce the number of search clauses.


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:

254561 INF: How to Obtain Service Pack 2 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 and Microsoft Data Engine (MSDE) 1.0

For more information, contact your primary support provider.


The specific scenario that was involved is too complex to include here.
