FIX: SELECT INTO Variable and Table May GP Fault Server

PSS ID Number: Q101810 Article last modified on 10-31-1994

4.20 4.20a


The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft SQL Server versions 4.2 and 4.2a for OS/2

BUG# OS/2: 1626 (4.2)


Executing a SELECT INTO statement that uses invalid syntax by assigning results to a local variable may trap SQL Server.

The following example traps the server:

declare @db_num smallint select @db_num = max(dbid) into #temp from sysdatabases


The above syntax is invalid. The same effect can be achieved by using either of the following two sets of statements:

declare @db_num smallint select @db_num = max(dbid) from sysdatabases


select max(dbid) into #temp from sysdatabases

If you want to assign to a variable and send data to a new table, use both statements.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server versions 4.2 and 4.2a for OS/2. This problem was corrected in SQL Server version 4.2aK10. For more information, contact your primary support provider.
