SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart your computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft SQL Server 2000, when you use Data Transformation Services (DTS) to create a Dynamic Properties task and you add an .ini file that contains more than 254 characters in section names, the section names are truncated to a total length of 254 characters. Therefore, one of the section names in the Section list may be truncated, and the remaining section names will not be displayed.

If you try to set the section name to the truncated section name in the Section list, the following symptoms occur:
  • The key name is not displayed in the Key list.
  • You receive the following error message when you click OK:
    No key name provided.
Additionally, if you set the section name manually in code by using the SourceIniFileSection property and then try to run the DTS package, you may receive the following error message:
Section 'YourSourceiniFileSection' not found.


For a list of previous hotfixes, see the "Microsoft SQL Server 2000 post-Service Pack 3 or Microsoft SQL Server 2000 post-Service Pack 3a hotfixes" section in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
