Hi, There is a SQL Server error log entry in the SQL Server 2005 production box with the following.   "Log Viewer could not read information for this log entry. Cause: Data is Null. This method or property cannot be called on Null values.. Content:"   Has anyone seen anything similar? Does anyone know what this mean and how I can debug this and get the process that is logging this to the SQL Server error log? Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The only process which should be writing data to the SQL Server’s log file is the SQL Server.

Open the ERRORLOG file in notepad and find the entry which is giving you the NULL error. What else is on that file of the file?

    Thankyou for the reply. When I open the SQL Server 2005 error log in note pad the entry is 2010-01-09 07:01:43.03 spid91 So all that is recorded is the time and process id, there is no other text message (i.e. null values), probably why when the ERRORLOG file is open in Studio Management it is indicating the entry is null. Have you encounter this before? Any idea as to why this is occurring? Thanks.
