Problem with Delete On Linked Server

I am getting time-out errors when I try to perform a simple delete on a
linked server. The command is:

Delete From MyTable Where PKID=12345

I have tried executing this command directly from Query Analyzer, but it
just times out. However, when I run it from QA against the server itself
(rather than from my local server against a linked server), it executes
immediately. Similarly, if I run the same SQL command through an ODBC linked
table in an Access 2000 MDB file (tweaking the syntax slightly), it also
executes immediately. Only if I run it from SQL 7 as a stored procedure or a
QA command against a linked server does it time-out.

I have no problems inserting rows using any of the three methods noted
above. It is only with deleting rows through the linked server that it times
out.

Thanks for any assistance.

Correction: The syntax used against the linked server is the four-art
syntax:

Delete From svr.db.dbo.MyTable Where PKID=12345

Also, the same problem occurs with updates as with deletes (but not
inserts).

Thanks,

I ran a profiler trace while inserting and then deleting a row from the
table on the linked server. I added all events to the trace. However, for
both the insert and delete, it only showed a single SQL:BatchCompleted
event -- except that after the line for the delete command, there was a
second, blank, line in the trace. The two lines for the delete didn't show
in the profiler until the batch was canceled. Below are the lines from
Profiler. Any assistance is appreciated.

Thanks,

Neil

Which box were you running the trace against? Try running it
against the destination (the linked server) instead of the
server that you are executing the command from.
Another thing to see if it works - try executing the
statement using OpenQuery instead of the 4 part name and see
if that makes a difference.

Couldn't run a trace against the linked server, as I don't have permissions
to execute the trace sp. Sent a note to the web admin to give me
permissions.

In the meantime, I used OpenQuery as you suggested. This time at least I got
an error message (yea!), though somewhat cryptic:

"Could not process object 'Delete From images Where ImageID=99986'. The
OLE DB provider 'SQLOLEDB' indicates that the object has no columns."

Any ideas about what that means?

Thanks!

OK, I found out that the error I got originally (per other message) was due
to the fact that Delete doesn't return rows, as OpenQuery is looking for.
So, per http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q270119, I
changed it to:

Delete OPENQUERY(abcweb, 'Select ImageID From images Where
ImageID=99987')

and it worked! Would still be good to find out why the original method
wouldn't work for deletes or updates, but did work for inserts. But at least
this works.

Thanks!
