BUG #: 55934 (SQLBUG_70)

This error may occur if the following conditions are true:
- The view was created using a UNION clause.
- The SELECT statement used to retrieve data from the view has a subquery in its WHERE clause.
To work around this problem, try one of the following:
- Query the table rather than the view.
- Avoid creating the view with the UNION clause.
- Avoid using a subquery in the WHERE clause.
