Converting INT Datatype To BIGINT Datatype

Dec 15, 2005


I have a table with IDENTITY column with the datatype as INTEGER. Now
this table record count is almost reaching its limt. that is total
record count is almost near to 2^31-1. It will reach the limit with in
another one or two months.

In order to avoid the arithmentic overflow error 8115, we would like
change the datatype from INT to BIGINT. we hope this will solve our

How do I approch this datatype conversion?. Since the data count is
huge, that leads to a long down time of database.

we need better approach or solution for this problem?. kindly give me
a better solution that will reduce the total downtime of the production

Change Datatype From Varchar To Bigint Not Working

Nov 14, 2007


I would like to change the datatype on a particular column from varchar to bigint across 100's of tables within a database.

I have the command ready which is:


The problem happening is that it seems there are constraints across all the columns in every tables.

The error message is:

Server: Msg 5074, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The object 'DF__tablename__columnname__0ABD916C' is dependent on column 'columnname'.
Server: Msg 4922, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
ALTER TABLE ALTER COLUMN columnname failed because one or more objects access this column.

I understand that if I delete this constraint, then it will let me modify the datatype of the column, but since there are tons of them and they are randomly named, how do I achive changing the datatype across multiple tables in bulk.

Numeric Datatype To Ssis Variable Datatype Conversion Problem

Apr 24, 2008

Good afternoon,

I have an issue with an ssis variable datatype.

The scenario is as follows:

I have a stored procedure:

PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_newTransaction]

@sourceSystem varchar(50),



insert into scn_transaction (sourceSystemName) values(@sourceSystem);

SELECT @txOut = @@identity

Whose purpose is to perform an insert into a table and return me the identity value of the inserted record, which I'll then use throughout the rest of my package. The identity column in the inserted table is numeric(18,0).

I execute the stored proc with the following sql with an OLE DB connection manager:

exec sp_newTransaction ?, ?

The first parameter is a string variable from earlier in the package, and the second is the output parameter. I have the following parameter mappings to the execute sql task:

User:ystxId output numeric 1 -1
User:ourceSys input varchar 0 -1

The proc is correctly called, and the row insesrted, however I get a type conversion error when SSIS attempts to map the return parameter to my package variable... I've tried all sorts of combonations, and can't seem to get it to execute.

At one point I wasn't returning a numeric, but rather an int from the stored proc, and all was well until I went to use the variable in a derived column later in the package, and the type was converted quite incorrectly (a 1 was 77799789080 or some such), indicating a type conversion error likely related to the encoding of the number.

I'd like to keep the datatypes as numeric and make ssis use those - any pointers are greatly appreciated as to what type my package variable should be to allow proper assignment of a sql server numeric type to it.

Thanks much,

Converting String To Datetime Datatype?

Jul 19, 2014

I have a column which has 05MAY2006:04:34:00.000000 it is stored as varchar(25). I need to save it as datetime in the same column. I have tried using

update tablename
set columnname = (SUBSTRING(columnname,1,2) + '-' + SUBSTRING(columnname,3,3) + '-' +
SUBSTRING(columnname,6,4) + ' ' + SUBSTRING(columnname,11,8));

and then

alter table tablename

alter columnname datetime;

but later it shows up the error

Msg 242, Level 16, State 3, Line 1

The conversion of a varchar data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range value.

How do I change it any other opinion or any modification for the above query.

Casting Or Converting Smallint Datatype To Datetime

Sep 8, 2007

A SQL Server 2005 db has three date related-columns (MonthGiven,
DayGiven, YearGiven) each as smallint datatype.  I would like to
create a DocDate column (datetime datatype) that combines the data from
the three existing date-related columns.  I have tried casting and
simple concatentation without success.  ALTER TABLE Details ADD DocDate DateTime NULL

UPDATE Details SET DocDate = CAST(MonthGiven AS DateTime)+ '/' + CAST(DayGiven AS DateTime) + "/" Cast(YearGiven As DateTime)
I think I need to be doing a Conversion instead of casting but
have been unable to implement info I have found in the SQL Server

Conversion Failed When Converting The Nvarchar Value To Datatype Int

Apr 1, 2008

Exception in one of the stored procs:

Conversion failed when converting the nvarchar value to datatype int. After moving database from 2000 to 2005.
Using backup and restore.

Note I had the same issue after restoring the production database on my local server SQL2000->SQL2000.

The problem was solved by restoring master and msdb from the production. But I can't do this on the SQL2005.

This is not a collation issue as I have ensured collation is the same on all databases including the system ones.

The database in question makes extensive use of user defined data types (Which I have recreated on the destination server).

Can anyone please help?

Integration Services :: Converting Datatype In SSIS

Jun 19, 2015

I'm editing an SSIS package. The source column has datatype float and the data is stored like 1,2 instead of 1.2. To change this into a period instead of comma there is a derived column step in the ssis package. The expression in this derived column step to change this goes as:<o:p></o:p> (DT_STR ,32,1 252)(REPLACE((DT_STR,32,1252)SUBSCHAAL_SCORE,",","."))<o:p></o:p>

where SUBSCHAAL_SCORE is the name of the column. As you see the data is converted into a string. I need it to be converted into a numeric datatype (18,6) instead of string/varchar but it must also handle the first issue with changing the comma into a period. <o:p></o:p>

Error Converting Data Type Varchar To Bigint.

Aug 25, 2005

I have the following query which has been giving me headaches for days :  SELECT SCCode [Service Catalog Code], FileName [File Name], FullName [Full Name], FileExtension [Extension], FileSize [Size],  Author [Author], CONVERT(VARCHAR(50),CAST(LastModified AS SMALLDATETIME), 120) [Last Modified],   CONVERT(VARCHAR(50),CAST(LastAccessed AS SMALLDATETIME), 120) [Last Accessed], TimesAccessed [Downloads],  UploadedBy [Uploaded By], CONVERT(VARCHAR(50),CAST(UploadedAt AS SMALLDATETIME), 120) [Uploaded At]  FROM #TempTable  WHERE id > @firstitem AND id < @lastitem  ORDER BY   CASE  WHEN @sortcolumn = 'Service Catalog Code' THEN SCCode    WHEN @sortcolumn = 'File Name' THEN FileName    WHEN @sortcolumn = 'Extension' THEN FileExtension    WHEN @sortcolumn = 'Size' THEN FileSize    WHEN @sortcolumn = 'Author' THEN Author    WHEN @sortcolumn = 'Last Modified' THEN CONVERT(VARCHAR(50),CAST(LastModified AS SMALLDATETIME), 120)    WHEN @sortcolumn = 'Last Accessed' THEN CONVERT(VARCHAR(50),CAST(LastAccessed AS SMALLDATETIME), 120)    WHEN @sortcolumn = 'Downloads' THEN TimesAccessed    WHEN @sortcolumn = 'Uploaded By' THEN UploadedBy    WHEN @sortcolumn = 'Uploaded At' THEN CONVERT(VARCHAR(50),CAST(UploadedAt AS SMALLDATETIME), 120)   END ASCWhen my @sortcolumn parameter is either FileSize (BIGINT) or TimesAccessed (BIGINT) then the query returns the data without any problem. However, if I use a different @sortcolumn value such as "Author" then I keep getting "Error converting data type varchar to bigint."A solution that seems to work is to drop CASE and use lots of IF statements instead. I don't prefer to do this because it requires me to repeat the same select statement for each and every possible @sortcolumn value!Does anyone know how to solve this? Help!

Transact SQL :: Converting Data Type Nvarchar To Bigint

Apr 17, 2015

This is a common error for SQL Server, but I got it in a uncommon way.I have a table called - tblIDNumber where there are two columns - IDN_Number [NVarchar(200)] and Temp [BigInt]

If I run,
FROM    dbo.tblIDNumber
WHERE   IDN_IDNumberTypeStaticValue = 33
        AND IDN_Removed = 0
        AND CAST(IDN_Number AS BIGINT) = 1

SQL Server give me the error:
Msg 8114, Level 16, State 5, Line 1
Error converting data type nvarchar to bigint.

I first thought IDN_Number in type 33 has characters, but it doesn't, becasue the below query works!!!

UPDATE dbo.tblIDNumber
WHERE  IDN_IDNumberTypeStaticValue = 33
        AND IDN_Removed = 0

To workaround, I ran the query,

UPDATE dbo.tblIDNumber
SET IDN_Number = '123'
WHERE  IDN_IDNumberTypeStaticValue = 33
        AND IDN_Removed = 0

and then I ran the first query, and SQL Server does NOT give me the same error - Msg 8114, Level 16, State 5, Line 1 Error converting data type nvarchar to bigint.

Second query approved there is nothing wrong from converting the value in IDN_Number to a BigInt, but the third query gave the hint that data might be the cause?????

finally, I found the root cause to be an index that the first query uses :

CREATE NONCLUSTERED INDEX [IX_tblIDNumber_Covering] ON [dbo].[tblIDNumber]
[IDN_Removed] ASC,
[IDNumberCode] ASC
INCLUDE ( [IDN_Number],

If I remove the index, the first query works without the error.

Arithmetic Overflow Error Converting Expression To Data Type Bigint

Jan 9, 2007

I am attempting to setup a replication from SQL Server 2005 that will be read by SQL Server Compact Edition (beta). I'm having trouble getting the Publication Wizard to create the Publication. Sample table definition that I'm replicating:

USE dbPSMAssist_Development;
CREATE TABLE corporations (
idWas NUMERIC(19,0) DEFAULT 0,
logIsActive BIT DEFAULT 1,

vchStrtAddr1 VARCHAR(60) NOT NULL,
vchPostalCode VARCHAR(10) NOT NULL,
vchPhnPrimary VARCHAR(16) NOT NULL,
CREATE INDEX ix_corporations_nm ON corporations(vchNmCorp, id);

When the wizard gets to the step where it is creating the publication, I get the following error message:

Arithmetic overflow error converting expression to data type bigint. Changed database context to 'dbPSMAssist_Development'. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 8115).

I can find no information on what this error is or why I am receiving the error. Any ideas on how to fix would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance ...

Strange Problem: Error Converting Data Type Varchar To Bigint.

Nov 30, 2007

The strange in this problem is that i got this problem suddenly and before all was running without any error.

The script that cause the error is in the trigger for insertion on a table, there is somewhere where i convert from varchar to bigint, but all seems fine to me i printed the varchar variable and the conversion looks valid, also i included several print statement in the script for debugging purposes and i feel everything is right and there shouldn't be any error.

I don't think anything changed in my db, so i wonder where this problem is comming from ?
this is the code:

I'd like to know which datatype would be the most efficient for this column.

What Datatype??

I have a message box or multiline textbox on my form and I am storing into an SQL DB. I currently have it as a VARCHAR, but that doesn't seem to store the carriage returns. Do I have to store them as a nvarchar, text, ntext or something else to make the returns show? I am pulling them out of the DB and showing them in a label where I replace the with a <br>.
tempMessage = Dr("Message")
message.Text = tempMessage.Replace("", "<br />")
