Bug #: 474402 (SQL Server 8.0)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2000 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2000 fix release.
This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
After you install Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4 (SP4), you receive the following error message when you try to open a trace table by using SQL Profiler:
Note To save a SQL Profiler trace file to a table, use the fn_trace_gettable function to read from the SQL Profiler trace file.
Failed to open a table.

This problem occurs because SQL Profiler cannot read the trace table. For example, this problem occurs if the table schema is not correct.
In SQL Server 2000 SP4, a code change was made to sort the table contents according to the RowNumber column. The RowNumber column is automatically created when you create a trace table by using SQL Profiler.
However, the RowNumber column is not created in the trace table if the following conditions are true, in the order in which they are presented:
The installer does not install this hotfix correctly on x64-based systems. This installation issue occurs when the following conditions are true:

To work around this problem, use one of the following methods:
Method 1: Create the RowNumber columnIf the trace table does not contain a RowNumber column, you can add a column that is named RowNumber to the trace table. Or you can re-create the trace table. When you do this, make sure that a RowNumber column exists in the newly created table. For example, if your trace file is named C:\Trc1.trc, use one of the following Transact-SQL statements:
Method 2: Use a version of SQL Profiler that is not updated to SQL Server 2000 SP4The code change that causes this problem to occur is implemented in SQL Server 2000 SP4. Therefore, you can open the trace table by using SQL Profiler from a SQL Server 2000 installation that does not have SQL Server 2000 SP4 installed.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
