Specified Cast Is Not Valid

Apr 7, 2006

Can't seem to find why I'm getting this error: Specified cast is not valid.

Ok, using a stored procedure for SQL Server 2000 and here is the main part of it:

 SELECT id, rank, firstName, lastName, service, status, createdTime
 FROM   accessRequest
 WHERE  lastName LIKE @tLastName
     AND    firstName LIKE @tFirstName

And the C# code behind from the class file:

SqlDataReader spResults;


spResults = command.ExecuteReader();

while( spResults.Read() )


AccessRequestSearch request = new AccessRequestSearch( (int)spResults.GetInt32( 0 ), spResults.GetString( 2 ), spResults.GetString( 3 ), spResults.GetString( 1 ), spResults.GetString( 4 ), spResults.GetString( 5 ), Convert.ToDateTime(spResults.GetString( 6 )));

searchResults.Add( request ); // Add to Array List



The part in red is where I think it's happening because that is what I just added to the request.  createdTime in the table is set as DateTime.

Can anyone see what I am missing here?

More info is available if needed.

Specified Cast Is Not Valid

Sep 11, 2006

im doing a sum on a table and it either returns a number in decimal format or 'null' .  The problem is when it returns null i want it to just make the text say '0.00'.  So i did a test on the object that if it returns NULL just print  '0.00' but if it is not null it tells me that there is a number there and i want to store that as a decimal and print it out.  But i get an error for a type cast when im not it should not even be going to that part of the code. In the code below the first executescaler will return null so it should just go straight to the else.  But it gives me the type cast error in the if that shouldnt be seen.  The error and code are below. //Borrower NSF FEES
cmd.CommandText = "select sum(itemamount) from postmtdtls where loanid='" + LoanID + "' and Transactioncode = '310'";
object temp = cmd.ExecuteScalar();
if (temp != null)
decimal B_NSFFees = ((decimal)cmd.ExecuteScalar());
borrowerPayoff_NSFFees.Text = String.Format("{0:#,#.##}", B_NSFFees).ToString(); //Borrower NSF FEES
borrowerPayoff_NSFFees.Text = "0.00"; //borrowerPayoff_NSFFees.Text = "0.00";

SSRS2000 - Specifies Cast Not Valid

I get the above error everytime I try to export to Excel; exporting to PDF works fine.

The only way I can get rid of the error is by deleting all the data from within the report (not ideal!). Anyone got any ideas on what could be causing this?

Many thanks,

Cast From String &"&" To Type 'Date' Is Not Valid

Hello, I am using an SQLDataReader called DrCoInfo to check if any matching records exist in a table.

My code is as such:

Line 120:While DrCoInfo.Read()
Line 121: If DrCoInfo("DateOfMan") <> "" Then
Line 122: BValid = True
Line 123: End If

However, it fails to work with the message :System.InvalidCastException: Cast from string "" to type 'Date' is not valid.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

I'm trying to install MSDE SP3 which I downloaded from MS at http://www.asp.net/msde/.
Following the instructions as best I can I unzipped the file into a Folder now called MSDE located on C: I then went to a command prompt and typed in the command given to start the install:

setup SAPWD=testsite SecurityMode=SQL

Hit enter and the installer started up and ran for a few secs and then came back with

The Instance named specified is invalid

There was no mention of including an instance name or the format for it.

Suggestions please?

Also, if I want to completly uninstall MSDE if I need to how would I do it?

Valid Backup To Use

Jan 11, 2006

I have a question regarding the backup to use in case of consistency errors.

I'm backing up my dbs daily and logs hourly with 'verify the integrity of the backup when completed' checked. Today I found out one of my tables has 1 page id error (dbcc checkdb message from yesterday), I'm wondering if I can use yesterday's full backup even if it's done after the dbcc, that way I don't have to apply a lot less log backups. In other words, does or does not the full backup inherit the corruption if it is done after consistency errors and the backup passes the integrity verification.

Certificate Not Yet Valid

Dec 22, 2006

Hi guys,

I'm having this really strange issue with mirroring.

I've followed the instructions on http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms191140.aspx to the letter, leaving out the witness server part, as I don't have one.

All works OK, but when activating the mirroring on the principal server I get the usual error 1418 error. I fired up SQL Server Profiler to see what was happening, and the following error emerged.

Connection handshake failed. The certificate used by the peer is invalid due to the following reason: Certificate not yet valid. State 104.

Anyone have any ideas?

Dateime Valid Ranges

Mar 17, 2004

I've got a linked server setup to DB2, and some of the
date fields in the DB contain 1/1/0001 values.

I've got views created in SQL2000 against the DB2 linked server.

When I run a query against a particular table that contains multiple field of datetime type.

I get the below error
Server: Msg 8114, Level 16, State 8, Line 1
Error converting data type DBTYPE_DBTIMESTAMP to datetime.

This only happens when I include in the select the field that contains 1/1/0001 values.

I assume since valid dates ranges in SQL are from
January 1, 1753 through December 31, 9999, this would be
what's causing this.

I tried to covert in the select but that failed as well. The only thing that I've been able to do, is to use a DTS to pull the data from the DB2 to a local SQL2000 table, with that fields type set as varchar. This works.

Using a DTS to pull the data to a local table in production isn't a viable workaround, since this table contains 1.8 million rows.

How is DTS converting this field, when convert fails in the select?

How do I get around this?

SqlCeException - The Column Name Is Not Valid

Feb 12, 2008

Hello Everybody

I'm getting a strange error.
I have created a Datatable and in this table I have multiple Columns.
I have given them all a name and now when I want to put data in the DataTable I get a error.
All goes well until I try to Update the Datatable

Code Snippet
DataRow DrWb = ppcDbDataSet.Item.NewRow();
DrWerkbon["ItemNummer"] = Defines.mcItem.miItemNr;
DrWerkbon["WorkerNummer"] = Defines.mcWorker.msWorkerNr;
Defines.mcItem.msWorkerNr = Defines.mcWorker.msWorkerNr;
DrWerkbon["CustomNummer"] = Defines.mcCustom.msCustomNr;
Defines.mcItem.msCustomNr = Defines.mcCustom.msCustomNr;
DrWerkbon["WbRedenBezoek"] = edRedenBezoek.Text;
Defines.mcItem.msReason = DrWb["WbReason"].ToString();

At the ItemTableAdapter.Update(DrWb) it gives the error:

SqlCeException was unhandled
The Column name is not valid. [ Node name (if any) = , Column name = WbReason ]

I don't understand why it is giving this error because the name of the column realy is WbReason

Does anybody know what to do about this??

Kind regards
