BUG #: 56510 (SQLBUG_70)
When you create a new Data Transformation Services (DTS) package in the SQL Enterprise Manager, click the Execute SQL Task button (or use the Task menu item), and then attempt to load a 5 MB script file, an Access Violation (AV) will be reported with an error message similar to the following:
This program has performed and illegal operation and will be shut down.
If the program persists, contact the program vendor.
Divide the script into smaller files and execute multiple SQL tasks.
