Hi Steve,

I did not receive a notification for this post (or perhaps I didn't see it) so apologies for the late reply. I have been meaning to write something around HP for a while, so yes I will take up that challenge. In the meantime, here is a KB reference for a SQL Server 7.0 bug with self-referencing INSERTs with a lack of proper HP as the root cause:

Thanks, I'll update things.

I'll change the question. Happy to add inserts if I have a reference. Perhaps a certain, very smart, well known, New Zealand Kiwi will blog something and prove it.;-)
