Can someone help please?
I'm using SQL Server 7 and trying to update a table containing over 250,000 records. I have a character(8) (CHARDOB) field representing dates of birth in the form YYYYMMDD and would like to update my datetime field (DOB) using a simple update command like:-
UPDATE MyTable SET DOB = RIGHT(CHARDOB, 2) + '/' + SUBSTRING(CHARDOB,
5, 2) + '/' + LEFT(CHARDOB, 4)
but get the message:-
Server: Msg 242, Level 16, State 3, Line 1
The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range datetime value.
The statement has been terminated.
The strange thing is that this works on a small dataset but crashes and burns on larger ones. I have tried different CAST and CONVERT options to transform the data into the correct format. I have tried a stored procedure, DTS transformations and execute SQL task in my DTS package without success.
I have table with column Date Of Birth its datatype is smalldatetime. Now I was looking for SQL Statement like I will give from date and to date as parameter it should select date of birth occurring between that date and month.
Here's the problem. I want to insert age in years to a table of children, using a MS SQL trigger to calculate age from Date of Birth (DOB). DOB format is mm/dd/yyyy. The DOB input comes from an ASP Insert statement. I've tried to use DateDiff and a user-defined function to calculate age without any success. Also the trigger needs to account for children of less than 1 year old, could be a 0. Age is integer in the children table. Any help is greatly appreciated. The sooner the better. Even a kick start is better than nothing.
Hello, I'm new to SQL Server, working for a non-profit computerizing alot of its data.I imported a table of people's names, birth dates, etc. into SS2005from Access, and the birth_date was imported as an Access date/timefield, giving it the datetime datatype in SQL.The column values look like:10/14/1964 12:00:00 AMWhere and how do I learn to specify that all fields like this should bein ISO format of yyyy-mm-dd??Do I have to create a new column and put all the dates into it??Should I just convert the data in queries/views??Use a constraint to format the data??I can redo the Access table if necessary, it is only 300-some rows.I tried BOL but it was not helpful...The end users will likely enter mm/dd/yy or mm/dd/yyyy and it will haveto be stored properly in the database table as column/fieldbirth_date...Thank you, Tom

I'm searching on a smalldatetime field in SQL Server so a typical value would be 09/21/2005 11:30:00 AM. I have a search form which offers the user a textbox to search by date and unless they enter the exact date and time, no matching records are found. Of course I want I all records for a given day to be returned. This is how I'm doing it now. Thanks. Dim dteDate_Requested As String = txtDate_Requested.Text If dteDate_Requested <> "" Then strSqlText += " Date_Requested='" & dteDate_Requested & "'"End If
HI everyne, I have a varchar field in one table, which contains data in the form '010706' and I want to convert this to date datatype to 01/07/2006 (Jan 07, 2006). When I just import the data to the other table it gets converted to 7/6/2001, how can I convert it right? Please help.
I wonder whether any of you can help me with a bit of code that you may have already had to execute??
I have a SQL database logging activities and a load of information in a mdb file that needs to be imported.
Unfortunately the data in the SQL database is in the format yyyy-mm-dd and the data in the mdb file is in dd/mmmm/yyyy.
When i run a DTS to import the data the new rows are imported as they were YYYY-dd-mm.:mad:
example: data logging as 2003-08-10 2003-08-11
imported data from last week arrives as 2003-01-08 2003-02-08 2003-03-08 etc
how can i manipulate the data in SQL to reverse the day and month numbers for Aug 1st to Aug 8th??
I have tried changing the mdb data format but that doesnt make a difference. I dont understand DTS enough to know whether it is possible there :confused: and my SQL skills dont rise to the challenge - yet!! :o
I have a datetime field in a table and I have to insert this datatime data into antoher table. In my insert statement I convert the datetime field into varchar and then insert it into the second table.
The date field in the original table is : 2/2002/13 3:58:12 PM but in the destination table i get: 2/2002/13 3:58:00 PM
I lose the seconds in the conversion, i think
Whats the best way to preserve to the datetime field during transfer?
I have one column that is a datetime, and another that is an INT which represents seconds. i cannot figure out how to subtract the seconds from the datetime column. sorry, i'm still kind of new to this TSQL. I get this error:Server: Msg 8115, Level 16, State 2, Line 1 Arithmetic overflow error converting expression to data type datetime.
when i try to do this select dateColumn - IntColumn from Table
so i think there must be a way to make sql know that IntColumn is actually seconds. thanks
Format 1 - char(5) - Example - 10305. 1 indicates century,03 indicates year and 05 indicates month. The day is not stored. So this is 2003,May 1
Format 2 - char(7) - Example - 1030525. 1 indicates century,03 indicates year, 05 indicates month,25 indicates day. 2003,May 25
I want to convert the above two formats to SQL Server smalldatetime and I only need the DATEPART. The date needs to be in the format mm/dd/yyyy. The default day would be 01 when the day is not specified.
If the format is 00305 then the 0 indicated 19th century. So this is 1903, May 1.
I have a SQL database where the dates appear in the format "733433". If you convert in the "Select" statement, it's fine. You can use the day, month, year concatenated in an excel expression, converts fine. As an expression in reporting services, I receive an error. An help is appreciated.
I need help with date conversion from character data. In SQL 2000 we used a Date Time Conversion task
I do not see how to do this in SQL 2005 SSIS. I tried a data conversion task to a database timestamp and this is what I got:
[Data Conversion ] Error: Data conversion failed while converting column "date_time_stamp" (47) to column "Copy of date_time_stamp" (396). The conversion returned status value 2 and status text "The value could not be converted because of a potential loss of data.".
Here is a sample of the input data I'm trying to convert.
I have a table with about 20,000 records that have a date field, stored as a datetime in the database like '8/28/2006 8:42:14 AM'. The dates range from March 2004 to current. What I would like to do is retrieve the dates in that format (month year) and put them in a dropdown. I have this so far:SELECT DISTINCT DATEPART(month, dte_date) AS Expr1, DATEPART(yyyy, dte_date) AS Expr2 FROM myTable ORDER BY DATEPART(yyyy, dte_date), DATEPART(month, dte_date)And the query returns the information that I want, but I can only bind one field to the dropdown. I was thinking that if I return the results a single expression (concantenate?) then I could bind that to the dropdown. I'm not sure as how to go about this. Also, the month returned is numeric and I would rather have the name of the month returned (like "July" instead of "7"). Thanks in advance to anyone who helps me.
I'm trying to insert a date, I don't want the current time. It would be ok if it was 12:00:00. I have tried using the below bold area, but I get an error that the conversion is not correct. Any ideas? INSERT INTO tblpayments (rec_ID,client_ID,tranDate,tranAmount,DateEntered,EnteredBy) SELECT rec_ID,client_ID,Convert(varchar(5), GETDATE(), 10) AS TranDate,Tranamount,DateEntered,EnteredBy
