    What type of data providers are these 2 server?
    If you are using a TSQL or SP then use SET NOCOUNT ON at the start of the procedure.

    I got the solution..

    The query was issuing warnings and thats why it was giving errors.
    I just added set ansi_warnings off
    and it worked fine.

    Thanks for reply

    is it advisable to use set ansi_warnings off? :)

    But in the query if you are refering any linked server then <set ansi_warnings off> returns error.. It doesn't set on that time!!
