BUG #: 17757 (SQLBUG_65)
SQL Server may generate a handled access violation (AV) when executing a stored procedure that inserts or updates a table with rules. This will only occur if the parameters passed to the stored procedure are of greater length than the parameters passed when the plan was originally compiled.
To work around this problem, use column or table level constraints rather than rules.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server version 6.5. This problem has been corrected in the Post Service Pack 5a Update for Microsoft SQL Server version 6.5. To install the Post Service Pack 5a Update, you must have either SQL Server 6.5 SP5 or SP5a installed.
For information about how to download and install the SQL Server 6.5 Service Pack 5a, refer to the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
197177 INF: How to Obtain SQL Server 6.5 Service Pack 5a
If you already have SQL Server 6.5 SP5 or SP5a installed, you can download the Post SP5a Update from the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
