I am getting an odd SQL error.

If I open enterprise manager and select the table in question.  I get the following message.
*******************
The Selected object has been dropped from the database.  Select Refresh to see the current objects.
*******************

If I select Refresh the table is still in the list.

If I  do a SELECT * FROM tbTableInQuestion I get this message


*******************
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Location:
q:\SPHINX\NTDBMS\storeng\drs\include\record.inl:1447 Expression:
m_SizeRec > 0 && m_SizeRec <= MAXDATAROW SPID:    56 Process ID:    980

*******************

Any thoughts on what is happening?  I need the data in the table.  Not sure if there is a backup somewhere.  It's someone elses system.

Thanks

Try closing and reopening EM.

If it doesn't show up in EM after closing and reopening, it's definitely gone and will have to be restored from backup. Or, you could purchase Lumigent's Log Explorer to recover it if you haven't changed the database much.

You could also take a transaction log dump of the database as it now and then restore the database to a point in time if you want to restore the table (recovery model would have to have been set to full, and you should restore the database to a new one not over the existing one).  This link has some details:
