When you run the Index Tuning Wizard, this error message may occur:
Server: Msg 3628, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
A floating point exception occurred in the user process. Current transaction is canceled.


When a double was out of range from an underflow or overflow, the Index Tuning Wizard incorrectly converted the number into the maximum or minimum float value.
