You should provide the code for better understanding.
I guess you're working with transactions and for some reason a rollback occurred and your SELECT is trying to access something that doesn't exist anymore.

Hi Vitor,

Please find the code here.
select distinct * from (
select a.DCName, a.GroupID, a.GroupName,a.OracleID,a.IsActive,format(a.ArchiveCount,'###,###') ArchiveCount,round(a.msgsizeGB,3) msgsizeGB,a.SearchType, a.MigratedFrom,  a.Status, Success, Pending, In_Progress, Error
from dbo.migration_tracker a 
a.Status <>'Completed' and a.status is not null
--and  a.isactive=1,
and a.groupid in (select GroupID from database12.[dbo].[ELS_DELATA_GROUPS])
and a.archiveCount is not null
and a.SearchType='Legacy'
and a.groupid  in (select distinct v. groupid from database12.dbo.vw_blobdirectoryqueue v union
select distinct v. groupid from scanels2.database12.dbo.vw_blobdirectoryqueue v union

You're selecting data from at least 4 different databases. Is this code running inside a transaction?
VijayAuthor Commented:
Just i am running from SSMS manually.
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
It's very hard to analyze from here, without having access to your databases.
We can't see what's happening in other databases when you're running this query.
I suggest you to remove the UNION selects and add them one by one to see if the issue is related only to one of those remote databases. Then you can focus only on that database so you can troubleshoot better.
