Cannot find FIX for BUG

  • We are currently running SQL Server 2000 SP3. Sometime in the past, a developer added code to an insert trigger as a work-around to the problem noted in this Knowledgebase article:

    I don't think the work-around is needed in our current version because I can't duplicate the problem. I remove the work-around code and everything works fine. For a performance-tuning perspective, I don't like code running in a trigger if it isn't necessary (especially since it is on our largested and most active OLTP table).

    But I am not allowed to remove the work-around in production until I can prove there is an official FIX in one of the service packs or version upgrades. Unfortunately, I can't find anything on the internet that documents a FIX for the BUG.

    I asked for help locating a fix on Expert Exchange. Their response was basically; "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". That's not the solution I am looking for!

  • well the KB article mentions it might take a long time for a trigger to compile, depending on the trigger.... since it just takes a while, but still works, i would reckon MS didn't prioritize it and try to optimize the issue.

    once compiled, it's a non issue,since it's pretty much a one time event. so what is your issue? is it taking minutes/hours to compile? does it finish compiling? does your trigger contain the items they identified that might slow things down?


    --help us help you! If you post a question, make sure you include a CREATE TABLE... statement and INSERT INTO... statement into that table to give the volunteers here representative data. with your description of the problem, we can provide a tested, verifiable solution to your question! asking the question the right way gets you a tested answer the fastest way possible!

  • In order for me to get permission from my manager to remove the code I have proven to myself is no longer needed, I have to be able to reference a microsoft FIX # for the associated BUG #. The Knowledgebase article that describes the BUG and workaround was last updated on October 3, 2003. I scoured the internet for a FIX #, but can't find one. I'd even be happy to find something that definitively says it is NOT fixed!
