SYMPTOMS

When you perform a bulk copy operation by using the DB-Library API in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4 (SP4), incorrect data is inserted unexpectedly.

Note This problem does not occur in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3).

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of a design change in SQL Server 2000 SP4. When you perform a bulk copy operation by using the DB-Library API, the bcp_init function performs the necessary initializations. In SQL Server 2000 SP3, the bcp_init function uses the clustered index that is created on the following columns in the syscolumns table to return the data:
  • The id column
  • The colid column
  • The number column
Therefore, the data is returned in the order of the colid column in the syscolumns table.

In SQL Server 2000 SP4, the bcp_init function uses the nonclustered index that is created on the following columns in the syscolumns table to return the data:
  • The id column
  • The name column
  • The number column
Therefore, the data is returned in the order of the name column in the syscolumns table.
