To work around this problem, use a STATIC cursor instead of a FAST_FORWARD cursor.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
Several similar problems are also fixed, including cursors built on queries that contain DISTINCT, GROUP BY, HAVING, or aggregates (besides UNION) in conjunction with remote tables or in conjunction with projections of large objects (LOBs) columns (such as text, ntext and image).
