Datetime Field Conversion

Aug 8, 2000

Hello, I would appreciate any suggestions
I've got a datetime field that I'd like to store as just the date without the time component, but still to keep it defined as a datetime field. I ran this update statement but this conversion isn't working. Conversion to char gives me what I want but I need to keep the field as a date datatype if possible.
Thanks :)

<column>=convert(datetime,convert(char(10),hire_date,101)) )

Informix Date Type Field To SQL Server Datetime Field Error

Oct 17, 2007

I am trying to drag data from Informix to Sql Server. When I kick off the package
using an OLE DB Source and a SQL Server Destination, I get DT_DBDATE to DT_DBTIMESTAMP
errors on two fields from Informix which are date data timestamp part

I tried a couple of things:

Created a view of the Informix table where I cast the date fields as datetime year to fraction(5), which failed.

Altered the view to convert the date fields to char(10) with the hopes that SQL Server would implicitly cast them
as datetime but it failed.

What options do I have that will work?

String To Datetime Conversion

May 30, 2008

Ive imported a data set into SQL. Now on redefining a text field to datetime, most dates that are filled come through okay.

The issue is that there are some empty fields which I'd like for it to stay empty after conversion. Now what happens is that the empty field becomes '01/01/1900' - which is throwing off our queries as we need it to be compared to other date fields.

Is there a way to keep it empty even after the datatype is changed to datetime?
Thanks a bunch!

Error In Datetime Conversion

May 21, 2008

Hi everyone,

I have a problem with a datetime field.
In the database is stored as datetime (121 format) ex. 2008-05-20 17:30:00.000
I have a simple select query (no datetime conversions used) and the result I get from the report looks like 5/20/2008 5:30 PM.

I dont want this format so i use this custom dd:MM:yyyy hh:mms

After that i get the dates like this 5/20/2008 5:30 instead of 17:30.

Any suggestions appreciated...

DT_DBTIME To DateTime Conversion

May 21, 2007

I have a column of DT_DBTIME data type in my Flat File source. This column is mapped to DateTime column in the SQL server destination table. A problem is that time values '12:06:39' and '13:37:45' are converted to the dates '12/30/1899 12:06:39 PM' and '12/30/1899 1:37:45 PM' correspondingly.

When I try the similar conversion from the inside Server Management Studio :

SELECT CAST('12:06:39' as DateTime), CAST('13:37:45' as DateTime)

I get the following results:

'1900-01-01 12:06:39.000' and '1900-01-01 13:37:45.000'

As you can see, the date portion is different and I expect that January 1st, 1900 is correct for this conversion. So, my questions are:

1. Why I have "previous" day in the Integration Services transformation?

2. How to fix this problem?

Thank you,

Datetime Conversion Problem

Mar 7, 2008

I have a client that records qa data in minute intervals. They like to look at the data in various ways (e.g. 15 minute intervals, x minutes after a shift starts, etc.)

The code below groups data into different time periods. For example, data collected in one minute intervals can be converted into 15 minute intervals. The intervals start from a specified start time. For example, a shift may start a 08:00 but they want to look at 15 minute intervals starting at 08:20 after everybody has settled in.

Unfortunately, it only works some of the time; different intervals work better than others. Five minutes looks good but 15 and 25 minute intervals mess up when there are missing datetime datapoints (i.e. when a group ends at a missing datetime data point it puts in a wrong value).

In sample source data below, 10:50:00 and 10:51:00 are missing. In the result table 10:58:00 should be 10:50:00 (even tho it is missing from the source). BTW, the data values are correct regarding start, end, min, and max values; only datetime is incorrect. The problem is probably coming from the CASE statements in the sample below. Can anybody help?
