BUG #: 17695 (SQLBUG_65)
If a dynamic SELECT cursor is created using the ISNULL() function or a date function, it results in an access violation (AV) when executed. For the access violation to occur, the following conditions must be met:
- Cursor must be used inside a stored procedure.
- A Clustered index must exist on the field that is involved with the function.
The returned column is used in an ORDER BY clause. For example:
declare c1 cursor for select Field1, ISNULL(Field2, 123456) As FieldX from tblTest order by FieldX
The problem occurs on all builds of SQL Server 6.5, from release to Service Pack 5a. It does not occur in SQL Server 7.0.
Declaring the cursor as INSENSITIVE prevents the access violation from occurring.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 6.5.
