Linked Server / Inconsistent Metadata
Posted on 2005-02-09
I've been getting the following error when attempting to do a 4 part query against my Linked server:
Server: Msg 7353
OLE DB provider 'MSDASQL' supplied inconsistent metadata. An extra column was supplied during execution that was not found at compile time.
The error message then lists the offending field.
I've dropped and recreated the linked server.
One more interesting note: If I create a view that references that linked table such as:
Create view vPV_SOrder as Select * from OpenQuery(ServerName, 'Select * from PV_SOrder')
and then do a select on that view (Select * from vPV_SOrder), I will not get the error.
Is a 'rebuild' of the schema necessary on the Linked Server side? SQL Server side?
This table was modified with the additional table, but there were also many other tables that had fields modified that do not return the error.
Thanks for any help.
