Unknown error in Query Designer: 800401F9

I am trying to retrieve data from my views. I can open the design view, but when I want to view the results of the query, I get:

Unknown error in Query Designer: 800401F9

This is urgent.

In QA, you need to make sure it's connected to the correct server and database. Also, if you have multiple copies of the database (such as two test databases, or a production database and a development database), then make sure the views exist on the database you're connected to. Can't think of anything else at the moment...

Here's a reference to your problem:

Here's a work-around: after designing, open the SQL pane, and copy the SQL. Then open Query Analyzer and paste the code, and execute from there...

I've already read the microsoft article. I uninstalled and reinstalled Enterprise Manager, and I still get the problem.

Tried your workaround and it doesn't recognize the tables I'm using -- must be doing something wrong.

Will try on another machine now.

Works on another machine per the KB article. Will see if my SQL admin can apply the patch.

Your workaround works -- I was connecting to the wrong database.

Thanks!

I'm having the same problem, only in the Enterprise manager and returning rows from a table. Since the same error also occurs when trying to make a connection with Spotlight SQL, the work arround is not very helpfull. Is the a solution fi replacing the dll ? wich one ??
