SYMPTOMS

When you perform a bulk insert operation in Microsoft SQL Server 2000, the transaction log file becomes corrupted and error 3624 is written to the SQL Server error log. Subsequently, the user database is marked suspect. For example, you run the following bulk insert operation:
DELETE FROM <tableName>

BULK INSERT TableName FROM 'FileName' WITH (DATAFILETYPE = 'native', TABLOCK)
When you do this, you may receive an error message that is similar to the following:
Date Time spid55 Stack Signature for the dump is 0x30BD6BDF
Date Time spid55 SQL Server Assertion: File: <recbase.cpp>, line=1374 Failed Assertion = 'm_nVars > 0'.
Date Time spid55 Error: 3624, Severity: 20, State: 1.
Date Time spid55 Using 'dbghelp.dll' version '4.0.5' *Dump thread - spid = 55, PSS = 0x3729d290, EC = 0x3729d5b8
This problem occurs when one or more of the following conditions are true:
  • A non-clustered index on the table exists.
  • A TABLOCK query hint is used.
  • The table was not truncated before you performed the bulk insert operation.
  • The DBCC DBREINDEX statement was not used to rebuild indexes before you performed the bulk insert operation.
For a list of previous hotfixes, see the "Microsoft SQL Server 2000 post-Service Pack 3 or Microsoft SQL Server 2000 post-Service Pack 3a hotfixes" section in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
290211  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290211/ ) How to obtain the latest SQL Server 2000 service pack

CAUSE

This problem occurs because an access violation occurs that was caused by an assertion in the RecBase::ResizeVar function. The access violation causes a fatal exception. The fatal exception causes the exception handler to put a user database in suspect status.
