BUG #: 57044 (SQLBUG_70)
Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 might generate a handled Access Violation (AV), when all of the following conditions are met:
  • You use a server based cursor.
  • You use a keyset cursor.
  • You insert data into a table.
  • The first INSERT inserts data into all the columns, except one. The second INSERT inserts data into all of the columns.
The following error message might occur on the client:
ODBC: Msg 0, Level 19, State 1 [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]SqlDumpExceptionHandler: Process 7 generated fatal exception 0000005 EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION. SQL Server is terminating this process.
Connection Broken
To work around this problem, try either of the following:
  • Use a client based cursor.


  • Use a dynamic cursor.
