Error Including Null Value In A Numeric Field

Apr 19, 2006

Hi All,

I'm migrating some SQL 2000 DTS to SSIS.

I am transfering data from a DB2 table to a SQL 2005 table using the OLE DB Source, Data Converstion then the OLE DB Destionation.

So, I have a numeric (Precision 3, Scale 2) field with NULL value in the DB2 table.

I'm trying to transfer these data to a SQL2005 table and I am receiving this error message below:

"[Destination Table TFACIL [18]] Error: There was an error with input column "COMB_OPPT_PRCT" (2865) on input "OLE DB Destination Input" (31). The column status returned was: "The value violated the integrity constraints for the column.". "

The field must accept null because of the APPLICATION ( i can't change it, im not the owner ).

Could someone help me?

Thanks in advance.

T-SQL (SS2K8) :: Arithmetic Overflow Error Converting Varchar To Data Type Numeric Message When Field Is Decimal

Apr 3, 2014

I am trying to setup an indicator value for an SSRS report to show green and red values on a report, based on the NRESULT value. The problem I am facing is that I have several different CASE statements that have the same logic, and they are processing just fine. NRESULT is a decimal field, so no conversion should be necessary. I do not know why I am getting the "Arithmetic overflow error converting varchar to data type numeric." error message.

Below is the CASE statement where the error is occurring. It is in the part of the ELSE CASE. The first CASE works just fine when the ELSE CASE is commented out. If I also change the ELSE CASE statement to say "else case when LEFT(NRESULT,1) = '-' then '0'", then it processes fine, too, so it has to be something I am missing something in the check on negative values. I do need the two checks, one for positive and one for negative values, to take place.

case when LEFT(NRESULT,1) <> '-' then --This portion, for checking positive values, of the CASE statement works fine.
CASE WHEN LEFT(ROUND(NRESULT,2),4) between 0.00 and 0.49 THEN '2' --Green
ELSE '3' --White
else case when LEFT(NRESULT,1) = '-' then --This portion, for checking negative values, of the CASE statement is producing the conversion error message.


I checked the NRESULT field, and there are not any NULL values in there, either.

Arithmetic Overflow Error Converting Numeric To Data Type Numeric

I'm getting the above when trying to populate a variable. The values in question are :
@N = 21
@SumXY = -1303765191530058.2251000000
@SumXSumY = -5338556963168643.7875000000

When I run, SELECT (@N * @SumXY) - (@SumXSumY * @SumXSumY) in QA I get the result OK which is -28500190448996439680147097583285.072256 ie 32 places to left of decimal and 6 to the right
When I try the following ie to populate a variable with that value I get the error -
SELECT R2Top = (@N * @SumXY) - (@SumXSumY * @SumXSumY)@R2Top is NUMERIC (38, 10)

Any ideas ??

INSTEAD OF Trigger - Error Inserting Into NOT NULL Field

Oct 7, 2004

I've just noticed some strange behavior that seems like a bug to me.
It's much easier to follow an example of it that to outright explain it, so here goes.

I have a table defined with a NOT NULL constraint on a column and a default clause:
-- DROP TABLE TestTable
CREATE TABLE TestTable ( TestField0 varchar(10), TestField1 varchar(10) NOT NULL DEFAULT ('a') )

I have a view defined on the table, in this example case, the view just mirrors the table one to one:
-- DROP VIEW TestView
CREATE VIEW TestView as SELECT TestField0, TestField1 FROM TestTable

So far so good, if I run this statement, it works as I would expect and inserts the value and the default goes into the other field:
INSERT INTO TestView (TestField0) SELECT 'test'

Now... If I add an INSTEAD OF trigger to the view, and have it perform the insert for me, I get an error with the same insert stmt:
-- DROP TRIGGER TestTrigger
CREATE TRIGGER TestTrigger ON TestView
INSERT INTO TestTable (TestField0, TestField1)
SELECT TestField0, COALESCE(TestField1, 'X')
FROM inserted

Notice the trigger will ensure that a null value cannot be inserted into TestField1. If I run this insert stmt though I get an error:
INSERT INTO TestView (TestField0) SELECT 'test'

Server: Msg 233, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
The column 'TestField1' in table 'TestView' cannot be null.

Am I missing something or is this a bug?

How To Convert Null To Currency Or Numeric

May 12, 2006

Greetings -

I have a problem that I am unable to fix. I am migrating data from one ERP system to another ERP system.

I created a table in SQL via DTS by converting an excel file into an SQL Table.

The table has a column 'currentcost'. Most items in the table have a value in this column. However, some items have <null> in this column. I am updating another SQL table with currentcost that is in this column. However, my table being updated requires a value in its corresponding currentcost table. Therefore, my update statement terminates due to the source table having <null> values.

I tried an update statement to convert <null> into a '0'

It was 'update Source_New_ItemMaster set currentcost = '0' where currentcost = <null>

This obviously didn't work. How can a change a <null> value in an SQL table to '0' (zero)?

Cannot Set Numeric To Null Before Inserting To Table

Jun 21, 2007


I have a flat file whose data looks like this:

"Opening Balance", Acct1234, 1001.01

"Closing Balance", Acct1234, 1001.01

In my script component for "Opening Balance", I set my output columns like this:

Row.AccountNumber = CDate(rowValues(1)

Row.OpeningBalance = CDec(rowValues(2))

Row.ClosingBalance = Nothing

Because I don't have a value for ClosingBalance in this row, I set ClosingBalance = Nothing.

And for "Closing Balance", I set my output columns like this, because there's no value for OpeningBalance.

Row.AccountNumber = CDate(rowValues(1)

Row.OpeningBalance = Nothing

Row.ClosingBalance = Nothing

Then, in my column mappings I map OpeningBalance = OpeningBalance and ClosingBalance = ClosingBalance.

The idea being that if there's no value, then it should be set to NULL. However, in my table, I see that instead of NULLs, there's 0.00000. Which is not what I want to see.

Any ideas why this is happening?

What are the precision & the scale values in the numeric field for?(as also in int, etc).I need to have a field that is exactly 6 digits in length. However , when I enter the value , in the length column , it defaults to either 5 or 9 , depending on the precision values. Also when I enter the data , that field accepts not only 9(defined with precision of 10), but more than that, till about 15 digits!!…I think I am not clear on the use of precision…what do I need to define the field as so it accepts only 6 digits?

Wildcard To Select All Using Numeric Field

Sep 6, 2007

Hi all,I've set up a page with a gridview, and I'm trying to create a query based on three parameters and to display all records when the page loads.I have created the first two parameters no problem, but I'm having problems with the last one.The parameter is to be populated by a dropdownlist, where the selectedvalue is numeric.  I have done  a search and found that I can't use the '%' wildcard as it is for a string data type.I have read somewhere that to get around this I can use the CHAR() function to convert to a character, I have tried this without success.When creating the ControlParameter the datatype gets set to string, which I think is not working becuase the input has to be an integer for it to conver to char, am I right?This is the query, and it is the @Application parameter that I'm having this problem with. SELECT dbo.Issue.IssueID, dbo.Issue.ReportedBy, dbo.Issue.ShortDescription, dbo.Issue.DateReported, dbo.Issue.Status, dbo.Priority.Description AS Priority,
dbo.Priority ON dbo.Issue.Priority = dbo.Priority.PriorityCode INNER JOIN
dbo.Application ON dbo.Issue.Application = dbo.Application.ApplicationID
WHERE (dbo.Issue.Status LIKE '%' + @Status) AND (dbo.Issue.AssignedTo = @AssignedTo) AND (CHAR(dbo.Application.ApplicationID) LIKE '%' + @Application)
ORDER BY dbo.Priority.PriorityCodeHas anyone managed to do this another way?Thanks

Integration Services :: SSIS Excel Data Source Numeric Values Returned As Null

May 8, 2009

I'm using SSIS 2005 Enterprise edition,  I'm creating a package that reads an excel (xls) file using the "excel source" component, and it dumps the data into an OLEDB destination (a sql server). When I drag the excel source component and create the excel connection to my file the component automatically reads the columns and their datatypes.

The problem is that I have a column which has numeric data and the package uploads as NULL every number that starts with a zero. (note: in excel this column is formatted as "text", despite it has only numbers, because it's the only way excel maintains the left sided zeros).

So I checked the data types by right clicking the excel source component -> show advanced editor and my surprise is that this column's data type is detected as double-precision float, and it doesn't let me change it. URL... but it only works when the first row of data has a number beginning with zero on this column. How to get the data imported correctly?

T-SQL (SS2K8) :: Using Not Like To Filter Out Non-numeric Values From Varchar Field

Mar 26, 2014

I am putting a SELECT statement together where I need to evaluate a results field, to determine how the color indicator will show on a SSRS report. I am running into a problem when I try to filter out any non-numeric values from a varchar field, using a nested CASE statement.

For example, this results field may contain values of '<1', '>=1', '1', '100', '500', '5000', etc. For one type of test, I need a value of 500 or less to be shown as a green indicator in a report, and any value over that would be flagged as a red. Another test might only allow a value of 10 or less before being flagged with a red.

This is why I setup a CASE statement for an IndicatorValue that will pass over to the report to determine the indicator color. Using CASE statements for this is easier to work with, and less taxing on the report server, if done in SQL Server instead of nested SSRS expressions, especially since a variety of tests have different result values that would be flagged as green or red.

I have a separate nested CASE statement that will handle any of the values that contain ">" or "<", so I am using the following to filter those out, and then convert it to an int value, to determine what the indicator value should be. Here is the line of the script that is erring out"

case when (RESULT not like '%<%') or (RESULT not like '%>%') then
CASE WHEN (CONVERT(int, RESULT) between 0 and 500) THEN '2'
ELSE '0'

The message I am getting is: Conversion failed when converting the varchar value '<1' to data type int.

I thought a "not like" statement would not include those values for converting to an int, but that does not seem to be working correctly. I did also try moving the not to show as "not RESULT like", and that did not change the message.

How I can filter out non-numeric values before converting the rest of the varchar field (RESULT) to int, so that it is only converting actual numbers?

How To Add NULL To INT Field

Jun 12, 2007

Hi all,

I have a table, named systems, with fields as follows.

field datatype
system varchar(50)
modelID int
.... ....
... .... etc...

The modelID field is related to the Models table. Therefore, the value it expects is a number that already exists in a Models.modelID field.

In the systems table, I allow nulls for the model ID field. If I edit the table directly through SQL front end it allows me to enter a system name for example and leave modelID value as NULL.

My problem occurs when I try inserting into the table from ASP. Whether I leave the value I'm passing to the stored procedure for insert blank or NULL it gives me problems.

Is this a typical issue that can be resolved with a simple property change?

Please help me resolve this, I need to have the ability to leave certain fields empty even though they are related to other tables. Is that possible?

Thank you for any help in advance.
