Symptoms


When you convert a database to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1, you receive the following error message:
The following SQL Server error or errors occurred:


1038,"42000",[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]An object or column name is missing or empty. For SELECT INTO statements, verify each column has a name.

For other statements, look for empty alias names. Aliases defined as "" or [] are not allowed. Add a name or single space as the alias name.


SQL:

CREATE USER [] FOR LOGIN []
You receive the error message at the end of the conversion process when the conversion process performs the security synchronization. However, the conversion can still be completed.



This problem occurs if the Windows logon includes an entry for a Windows account that is deleted from Active Directory. For example, an orphaned Windows logon will show as an SID in the Windows logon page in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, such as S-1-5-21-1112297600-1276790842-313073093-1050.




Notes
  • During the typical synchronization, the problem does not occur.
  • If you perform a full synchronization before you convert the database in the earlier version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, this problem does not occur.
  • If you perform the upgrade process on a Windows 7-based computer, the error message resembles the following:
    CREATE USER [ddd] FOR LOGIN [ddd]
