An unexpected error occurred (file 'xmcompanalyzer.cpp', line 553, function 'XMCompressionAnalyzer::SelectBitPackCompression'). The current operation was cancelled because another operation in the transaction failed.


This issue occurs because sanity checks that are performed by SSAS do not recognize possible overflows in some particular situation.
