More information
Because the problem is encountered during query normalization, attempts to view the SHOWPLAN of the query lead to the exception condition as well.

An example of a query that leads to the problem condition follows. It generally requires 2 or more tables resulting in a correlation or grouping evaluation as shown.
SELECT DestinationPage.NetworkId FROM DailyTQSContextUsage_20001103,      DestinationPage,      Geography  WHERE   DESTINATIONPAGE.PAGEID =              DAILYTQSCONTEXTUSAGE_20001103.TARGETPAGEID      AND                                Geography.CountryId =             DAILYTQSCONTEXTUSAGE_20001103.COUNTRYID
