|- Microsoft SQL Server version 4.2 for OS/2 - Microsoft SQL Server version 4.2|
BUG# OS/2: 1705 (4.2) NT: 272 (4.2)
A SELECT with an assignment to a local variable in the SELECT clause and a FOR BROWSE clause may trap the server or disconnect the user’s connection with an error:
10008 Bad Token
This only happens when a unique index exists on the table being selected from.
For example: DECLARE @ordnum int SELECT @ordnum = OrderNumber FROM SaleOrder WHERE OrderNumber = 1 FOR BROWSE
Do not use the FOR BROWSE clause in a Transact SQL statement when values are being selected into local variables. The FOR BROWSE clause is designed to be used with DB-Library applications, and is not designed to be used in cases like this.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server version 4.2 for OS/2 and Microsoft SQL Server version 4.2. This problem was corrected in SQL Server version 4.2aK11 for OS/2. For more information, contact your primary support provider.
