- Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3
BUG #: 362976 (SHILOH_BUGS)
Starting with Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3), the Merge Agent may report failures for articles that have an indexed view defined or that have an index on a computed column defined. You may receive the following error message:
The xp_execresultset extended stored procedure is used to create the merge procedures (sp_ins, sp_upd, sp_del, and sp_sel) for articles. Starting with SQL Server 2000 SP3, xp_execresultset has been re-written as a Transact-SQL stored procedure. However, this Transact-SQL stored procedure was incorrectly created with the ANSI_NULLS OFF setting. Because the dynamic EXECUTE statement inherits from the parent procedure setting, the merge procedures (sp_ins, sp_upd, sp_del, and sp_sel) were also created with the ANSI_NULLS OFF setting. This violates the requirements for indexed views that need the ANSI_NULLS setting to be ON. For a complete list of requirements for indexed views, see the "REFERENCES" section of this article.

NOTE: Because of file dependencies, the most recent hotfix or feature that contains the files may also contain additional files.
To work around this problem, follow these steps:
- Use the ALTER PROCEDURE statement to change the xp_execresultset Transact-SQL command and the sp_execresultset Transact-SQL command after you turn the ANSI_NULLS setting to ON.
- Run the sp_vupgrade_replication stored procedure to re-create the merge stored procedures with the correct ANSI_NULLS setting.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4.
