When I use NTILE in a query inside of SQL server management studio it stops working. I can use NTILE in the SQL Query ANalyzer with no problem.

I do not see any entries in the Server Log about a problem.

Any ideas? Thanks.

When I use NTILE in a query inside of SQL server management studio it stops working.
Care to elaborate?  
Where specifically does it "stop working"? Query Window?  Designer (ug!), somewhere else?
How does it "stop working"?
        1. Error message, if so what was the error message?
        2. Wrong results, if so what are they and what was the expected output?
        3. Something else?

I can use NTILE in the SQL Query ANalyzer with no problem.
SQL Query Analyzer was a tool that came with SQL Server 2000, so you cannot be using that as SQL Server 2000 did not support NTILE.

I get a window that says the  management studio stopped working. Like the program had a glitch.

SQL query analyzer can connect to a 2005 database and NTILE works fine.

I am confused what are you using?  SSMS or SQL Query Analyzer?  If you are using SSMS are you using the Query window or the Query Designer?

Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

I'm executing an NTILE query on a table using SSMS. Open table and use SQL pane then write the NTILE query.

SELECT TICKER, performance, NTILE(4) OVER (ORDER BY performance) FROM LOAD_Performance_Peers
WHERE (Performance IS NOT NULL)
ORDER BY performance

I am afraid I have no idea what is going on.  I tested your query and there was no error message.   Have you checked the integrity of your database recently (DBCC CHECKDB) ?
