MSSQL sys.partitions Crash

leo_paris posted 1 year ago in General

MSSQL Version 8.0.760

On HeidiSql the count rows fonction was :
And worked.

Since HeidiSql 8.2...
it uses :
SELECT object_name(object_id) AS tablename, SUM(rows) AS rows
FROM sys.partitions
index_id IN (0, 1)
AND object_name(object_id) IS NOT NULL
GROUP BY object_id
ORDER BY tablename

Witch may be faster but makes Crash HeidiSql on MSSQL 8.0.760

Will there be a workaround on this ?

Thanks !

Ok, so if it's ok to use SELECT COUNT(*) on all versions then I would prefer to do so. Any performance issues on larger tables?

Yes may be I did not run tests on Big tables for now.

But I thinks it's better to have a function witch works with all version for now.
Else You would need a table of versions with compliant fonctions ...

I'll try to run some test with count(*) on small to big tables and send you the results.

Do you know if this was ever schedule to be implemented?
Unfortunately, I an still using MSSQL2000 and I hit this issue frequently.

Should be finally fixed in r4941, by falling back to SELECT COUNT(*) on MSSQL 2000.

Close but getting a different exception.

/* SQL Error (170): Cannot use empty object or column names. Use a single space if necessary
Line 1: Incorrect syntax near ''. */

For me that worked, but it seems that MSSQL 2k wants the database name, not the schema name here. Should be fixed in r4942.

Think we're getting closer. I noticed when you did the select top 1000 you used two periods, and no error. One period is still abending.

I do not know Delphi, but can you catch the exception and just continue?

See attached screenshot.

Ok, so what is "element_prod" - a database or a schema?

I am blindly fixing things, as I don't have a MSSQL 8 server here.

It is the name of a db, and also the name of a user. I am not sure which it is expecting. I believe it is referencing for the db user.table? The owner of the tables is a user dbo.

No worries on the iterations. I'm just happy you haven't told me to deal with it and upgrade. We should be getting out of mssql 2k this year.
