BUG #: 56034 (SQLBUG_70)
Expand all | Collapse all


A handled access violation (AV) exception error occurs within an INSERT SELECT statement under the following conditions:
  • The statement contains a HAVING clause.
  • The statement contains a subquery.
  • The subquery contains a join.
  • The subquery contains a DATEADD function with a nested DATEDIFF function.


Instead of using the subquery in the INSERT SELECT statement, first use a SELECT INTO to place the results of the query in a temporary table and then use this temporary table with the INSERT SELECT statement.
