Bug #: 470953 (SQL Server 8.0)
Microsoft SQL Server 2000 fixes are distributed as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2000 fix release.
Symptoms
When you run a DELETE statement that has a join condition on an instance of SQL Server and the statement execution plan that is generated for the DELETE statement uses the nested loop join strategy, you may receive an error message that is similar to the following:
Server: Msg 625, Level 20, State 1, Procedure Procedure Name, Line 376
Cannot retrieve row from page (25:2464) by RID because the slotid (1197518160) is not valid.

Workaround
To work around this problem, run the DELETE statement by using a query hint to use a hash join as the join strategy of the query. To do this, include the OPTION (HASH JOIN) clause in the query, and then run the query.

For more information about using the OPTION clause to specify a join strategy, see the "OPTION clause" section in the following MSDN Web site:
Status
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4.
