Debugger You may encounter some issues when debugging remotely. ST82044

Execution Plan

You cannot generate an estimated execution plan for queries containing local temporary tables because the execution plan uses a different connection to generate the plan and does not know about the temp table.

Use the actual execution plan button to generate execution plans for SQL that contains a temp table.

Export Wizard/ One Click Export

Limitations when exporting fractional seconds:

  • When exporting to an Access Database File, exports do not support fractional seconds, so the additional data is not exported.

  • When exporting to an Excel instance, exports support only 3-digits for fractional seconds. However, if you export to an Excel file, it supports all fractional seconds.


Avoid using Excel for exporting if your data has numeric values that require a high precision because Excel's precision is limited to 15 digits. If you export numbers with more precision, the values are rounded. If you export boundary numbers (max, min), rounded numbers will exceed the data type limit.


Job Manager SQL Azure connections currently display in the Job Manager even though the Job Manager is not available for SQL Azure. ST75721
Log Reader User information only displays for operations in the sessions that are currently open. Backups do not contain this information because only the SPID information is available to them.


SQL Azure connections currently display in the Read Log wizard even though the Log Reader is not available for SQL Azure. ST75720
Object Explorer/ Database Explorer

Table and Index Partitioning:

  • Currently, you cannot create or manage a partition on a table or index that includes a FileStream column.
  • Currently, estimating index compression savings runs a full table compression savings query, so the estimation may be slow on large tables.



FDCC: User cannot start/stop SQL Agent running Toad with Regular or Admin User account on the client side in some limited environments.


Start the SQL Agent on the server side.


Third Party Known Issues

2003 PIAs:    

2007 PIAs:  


Import Wizard Importing large data sets from Excel (approximately 650,000 rows) is not recommended because of the amount of time it may take. This issue occurs because the Excel import component maintains the output in memory until the import completes. This can cause performance issues depending on the available system resources. 219754

Some users may experience an exception when the screen is set to certain resolutions.
