I'm also using SQL 7 and I ran into the same problem with the local
Enterprise Manager not being able to open tables using 'Return all rows' or
using 'Return Top...'. Enterprise Manager on another computer works fine
when opening the same tables. I tried to install SQL 7 Service Pack 2(SP2)
to see if that would fix the problem.
The SP2 installation did not complete successfully. It seemed to update
the database engine but failed when trying to run some scripts. The error
message I got was "Error running script: upgrade.sql(1)". I clicked OK and
the installation seemed like it was trying to continue for a few (15?)
seconds before another dialog box appeared with the message "An error
occurred when running the upgrade to your server.". I click the OK button
and the installation is finished.
Enterprise Manager now is able to open the tables. I wonder if the problem
is going to come back like it did in Aylon Glaser's installation. Also, the
Is my server stable right now with a "partial" install of SP2? Does anyone
know why the SP2 installation did not complete successfully? Someone did
install IIS on the SQL server machine at some point. Could that have broken
