SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You enable change tracking on a table in SQL Server 2008 or in SQL Server 2008 R2.
  • You run a query that uses the CHANGETABLE function together with the last_sync_version argument to return tracking information for the changes that occurred in the table.
  • A bigint value is passed as the last_sync_version argument.
For example, you run the following query after you enable change tracking on a table:
SELECT * FROM CHANGETABLE(changes dbo.t1, 2222222222) as ct
In this scenario, the execution of the query fails and you receive the following information:
Msg 1080, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
The integer value the bigint value is out of range.
Notes
  • The type of the last_sync_version argument is defined as bigint. Therefore, the query is expected to run successfully.
  • the bigint value is a placeholder that represents the bigint value that is passed as the last_sync_version argument.
