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 in the previous SQL Server 2000 fix release.
If a computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services has a cube where real-time updates are enabled and an Analysis Services (Msmdsrv.exe) build between 8.00.0874 and 8.00.0918 is installed on the computer, Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) queries against the real-time cube may not reflect updates that are made to the relational table that serves as the source for the real-time data.
This problem was introduced in Analysis Services build 8.00.0874.
