BUG #: 58068 (SQLBUG_70)
If NO_BROWSETABLE is set ON, a distributed query against a table with a timestamp column can result in a handled EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 3 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

For more information, contact your primary support provider.
The access violation occurs on the local SQL Server that initiated the query to the remote server. NO_BROWSETABLE is typically only used by applications that use certain types of result processing, such as disconnected recordsets.
