FIX: Merge Snapshot Fails with "Line 1: Incorrect syntax near '[Object Name>]'."

Article ID: 248135

This article was previously published under Q248135

BUG #: 55374 (SQLBUG_70)


The merge snapshot agent fails and reports the following error:

Line 1: Incorrect syntax near '[Partial Object Name]'.


When a large number of tables are joined together in a publication, the table names are concatenated together into a large view name. If this large view name exceeds 2000 characters, the merge snapshot fails with a syntax error. The error is different depending on where the view name is truncated.


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:
