SUMMARY

  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

When you create a merge publication by using vertical filtering and the sum of the length of the published column names exceeds 4,000 characters in Microsoft SQL Server 2000, the merge publication operation fails and you receive an error message that is similar to the following:
Server: Msg 107, Level 16, State 3, Procedure TEMP_VIEW_Merge, Line 1 The column prefix 'Merge' does not match with a table name or alias name used in the query.
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:
290211 How to obtain the latest SQL Server 2000 service pack

CAUSE

This problem occurs because SQL Server 2000 truncates column names past the 4,000-character limit. The truncated column name creates a malformed SELECT statement. The malformed SELECT statement causes this problem to occur.
