- Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3
When you try to compile a Microsoft Visual Basic file that was created when you saved a Data Transformation Services (DTS) package, the Visual Basic compiler raises a syntax error. The error is detected in a line where a literal is assigned to a textual property of a DTS object.
If the literal that is assigned to a textual property is larger than 263 characters, and there are no line breaks in the middle of the string, an error in the chunking/concatenation routine introduces syntax errors in the Visual Basic code that is generated.

Note Because of file dependencies, the most recent hotfix or feature that contains these files may also contain additional files.
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.
Steps to reproduce the problem
To reproduce this problem, follow these steps:
- Open SQL Server Enterprise Manager.
- Connect to a server, and then expand its tree.
- Expand Data Transformation Services.
- Right-click Local Packages, and then click New Package.
- In the DTS Package Designer window, on the Connection menu, click Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server.
- In the Connection Properties dialog box, set the connection properties to appropriate values, and then click OK.
- On the Task menu, click Execute SQL Task.
In the SQL statement box, enter the following statement, and then click OK:
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[MyFirstTestTable] ([FirstColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [SecondColumnOne] [int] NOT NULL, [ThirdColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [FourthColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [FifthColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [SixthColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [SeventhColumn] [int] NOT NULL) ON [PRIMARY]
Note Make sure that you remove all line breaks from the previous statement.
- On the Package menu, click Save As.
- In the Save DTS Package dialog box, in the Location box, click Visual Basic File.
- Select a location, enter an appropriate file name in the File name box, and then click OK.
In Visual Basic or in another text editor, open the generated .bas file.
The following lines are located several lines before the end of the file:
oCustomTask1.SQLStatement = "CREATE TABLE [dbo].[MyFirstTestTable] ([FirstColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [SecondColumnOne] [int] NOT NULL, [ThirdColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [FourthColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [FifthColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [SixthColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [SeventhColumn] [int] NOT NULL) ON [PRIM" oCustomTask1.SQLStatement = "CREATE TABLE [dbo].[MyFirstTestTable] ([FirstColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [SecondColumnOne] [int] NOT NULL, [ThirdColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [FourthColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [FifthColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [SixthColumn] [int] NOT NULL, [SeventhColumn] [int] NOT NULL) ON [PRIM"oCustomTask1.SQLStatement = oCustomTask1.SQLStatement & "ARY]"
The second line introduces a syntax error for the Visual Basic compiler.
