While working in SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Manager on a remote server today, I wanted to look at a table's columns, so I found the table, right-clicked on it and selected "Design Table".
Instead of getting the table design view, I'm greeted with a white page with the following informational message:
Navigation to the webpage was canceled
What you can try:
- Refresh the page.
If I click "Refresh the page", I get another white screen with the following message:
This program cannot display the webpage
Most likely causes:
- You are not connected to the Internet.
- The website is encountering problems.
- There might be a typing error in the address.
I'm not sure who was tinkering around with the server, but I would love to know how to resolve this.
2011/04/19 update: I checked, and KB961260 hasn't been installed. The server is Windows 2003 R2, with SQL Server 2000 and Internet Explorer 8 for what it's worth. I tried dropping security settings in IE to Low for Local and Trusted sites, which did not fix the issue.
We've also discovered that right-clicking on a table and selecting Open Table > Return All Rows gives the same error. Designing and opening a view gives the same errors as above, but double-clicking on a view to open its properties lets us view the properties as normal. We can also manage triggers, generate SQL scripts, etc. without issue.
Right-clicking on the first error page and checking its properties gives me this:
Right-clicking on the second error page and checking its properties gives me this:
