Bug #: 100831 (SPHINX)
In an Execute SQL task for a Data Transformation Services (DTS) package, a GOTO statement may fail with the following syntax error when you try to parse the query or run the package:
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'to'.
The token fetch incorrectly reads "go" instead of "goto", which ends the batch and triggers the syntax error.
