Decreased performance when you run a list form or page that displays the table that contains a BLOB field in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1

This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV for all countries and all language locales.

Symptoms

Assume that a table contains a binary large object (BLOB) field and the BLOB field contains data in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1. When you run a list form or page that displays the table, the list or page is slow to display the data. This problem may also occur even if the BLOB field is not included on the list or page.

Cause

The SQL queries that are generated by NAV typically is a SELECT * query. But when the table includes a BLOB field, the query will select each field (SELECT Field1, Field2, Field3, etc). This query should not include the BLOB field, and instead only done SELECT DATALENGTH (BLOB field). This is the point of selecting individual fields. But before this fix, the SELECT statement did include the BLOB field. This means that all the data that is stored in the BLOB fields would be returned from SQL Server, slowing down the communication.

Resolution

Hotfix information

A supported hotfix is available from Microsoft. There is a "Hotfix download available" section at the top of this Knowledge Base article.
