BUG #: 56435 (SQLBUG_70)


The Data Transformation Services (DTS) Designer Fails with the following error when adding a table to the DTS Query Designer Window:

Unspecified error

This error did not occur prior to Service Pack 1.


DTS fails with an "Unspecified error" error when using IBM's Client Access Driver to request heterogeneous schema information. In SQL Server 7.0 Service Pack 1, SQL Server began setting the provider specific initialization properties. These properties were not being set correctly for IBM's Client Access Driver.


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:
