Sharepoint Integration With Erroneous Date Format In Date Time Picker
Dear Expert!
A server with SQL 2005 sp2, Reporting Services and Sharepoint services (ver 3.0) (in integrated mode) gives an odd error. When viewing a Reporting Services report with a Date Time Picker, the date chosen is wrong. The preferred setting is Danish with the date format dd-mm-yyyy. The date picker shows the months in Danish but when selecting a date, and clicking on the Apply-button, the date reformats to US (mm-dd-yyyy).
When choosing 5th of September 2007 and clicking apply, it shows in the picker, 9th of May 2007.
When choosing 26th of September 2007 and clicking apply, it shows, again in US format, the RIGHT date but adds a timestamp €ś12:00 AM€? in the end, making further enquiries to fail.
The report itself receives the right date and shows correctly. The only case it fails is, when the time  stamp appears.
The server is a 32-bit one with 4 GB RAM. A testserver with identical collation on the Reportserver database cannot recreate the error. The site containing the reports has been set to Danish in the regional settings. To Reinstall is not an option.
The test report has no database connection whatsoever.
When setting the site to US, the timestamp won€™t appear at all.
The server has been restarted and the installation procedure was of the simple kind. No special tweaks at all.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Kind Regards
Johan Rastenberger

SSRS Date Format


I am new to using Business Intelligence Development Studio. I have ' FROM' and 'TO' parameters set using DATETIME, when I select the dates I wish to use so I can generate a report it is displaying in the American format being mm/dd/yy, however the server only recognises dd/mm/yy, the server has SP2 installed.


Is there any way of formatting the calendar control so that dd/mm/yy is recognised instead of the American format.

How Do I Convert A Unix Date/Time Field To A Date When The The SQL DB Stores That Data As Char 11?
Hi there. 
I'm trying to extract data from my SQL server & everything in the script I've got is working (extracting correct data) except for one field - which is for the most part it's off by +2 days (on a few occasions - I see it off by just +1 day or even +3, but it's usually the +2 days). 

I'm told that it's due to the conversion formula - but - since SQL is not my native language, I'm at a bit of a loss.

The DB table has the date field stored as a type: CHAR (as opposed to 'DATE')
Can anyone out there help?

Please advise.  Thanks.

Problem With Current Date For Date & Time Field
I have a table named "shift" and I need to setup my query to return only data where the field "startime" = today. The problem I am running into is the starttime field it laid out like "2005-12-29 14:00:00" with different time values. I need to ruturn everything that has todays date regardless of the time value. I tried using GetDate() but that is returning data for other days as well or just data before or after the current time. Does anyone have any suggestions? This is driving me crazy! Thanks, Garrett

How To Format A Date Field
Hi,comming from php/mysql some things here on this side are great - but some seems to be solved in a way I can not figure out.What I need is a way to get a string in the format "yyyy-mm" out of a date-time field like:09/05/2006 23:12:36   should produce    2006-09    as one stringWhat I figured out by my own is: SELECT { fn CONCAT({ fn CONCAT(DATENAME(yyyy, dateField), '-') }, STR(DATEPART(mm, dateField))) }, ...but this returns "2006-    9" with blanks in it. Or I could use 2 times the DATENAME but this would give 2006-September.Would it help to use a stored procedure?Thanks,Klaus

I have some difficulties to format a Date value in my reporting service.

As you know you can use this kind of expression:


But it does not work, and when I just want to use the format property of the textbox content such as "dd/MM/yyyy", it displays "dd/MM/yyyy", not the real formatted data, this property works for "=Today()" but not for parameters and fields. What is the diffrence?

Have you an idea to format a Parameter/Field of Date type such as dd/MM/yyyy?

Convert The Format Of A Date Time String Transformation....
Im working with a breaking system and I wont to convert the (FROM) datetime column to accept just time like (4:00:00 AM) without the date (7/23/2004) but it doesn’t have column format like the access ??
I found something in the SQL help :

How to convert the format of a Date Time String transformation (Enterprise Manager)
To convert the format of a Date Time String transformation
1.On the Transformations tab of the Transform Data Task Properties or Data Driven Query Task Properties dialog box, click the Source column containing the date or time to be modified, and then click the Destination column where you want the modified string to be placed.
2.Do one of the following:
•If there is a mapping arrow connecting the two columns, click Delete, and then click New.
•If there is no mapping arrow, click New.
3.In the Create New Transformation dialog box, click DateTime String.
4.Click the General tab, and then click Properties.
5.In the Date Format list, select the format you want.
6.Click Naming to display the Calendar Names dialog box, where you can select long or short day or month names and the A.M. and P.M. designators you want.
7.In the Language list, select the language you want, and then click Set Language Defaults.
But unfortunately I didn't find the "Transformations tab" I look a lot in the SQL Enterprise Manager

Do anybody work with the Transformations or at least know where is it please ???

Data Selection Not Happening For A Date Because Of Time Format
hello all,

i am making a query which select the data again a particuler date.

I insert values in the table for with current date(Today's date) and the records is inserted with the date format(2006-07-14 16:12:09),now when i run the query  after 2 or 3 minutes to select the records inserted today, my query returns no results.

I think it is because of the the time (14:16 in this case) that after 2 minutes, the query looks for the records inserted at (2006-07-14 18:12 or 2006-07-14 19:12) and does not get the result.

Is there a method to not consider the time(14:16) when running the query but the query fetches the records including the records inserted at this time(14:16) no matter at what time I run the query today?

Please anyone help me!

Thanks in advance!

Date Time Format Options When Writing To A Flat File
We are using an ADO.NET provider in SSIS to read data from a SQL Server 2000 table that contains DateTime columns to write to a Flat File Destination.  When the date values are written to the file they are formatted in TimeStamp to the 10th decimal position; e.g.€ś2006-04-24 12:00:00.123000000€?.  Since SQL Server supports values to Timestamp(3), we need to truncate the last seven zeros to put the data in this format €ś2006-04-24 12:00:00.123€? to keep the file as small as possible.
Since we have several hundred DateTime columns in scope for our requirements we are looking for the least logic/effort to accomplish this task.  We can do this via Data Conversion and Derived Column transformations to cast the dates and strings but it is very labor intensive.  It would be something like singing 99 bottles of beer on the wall eight times in a row with each verse taking 3 minutes each.  Yikes.
We have tried casting the DateTime columns to varchar in the SELECT statement but receive this format €śApr 24 2006 12:22PM€?.
Is there a configuration we've missed that forces timestamp(10) with non significant digits?

Strip Time Out Of A Date Field - Sql
Hi all,

I have a table that I've imported into SQL - there is a field in there for date that must have used now(); as its default value (access).

So the values are something like:

01/11/2004 12:16:42

I need a way to change the data so that the time element removed is the field just holds the date. Failing that a way to insert this from the existing field into a new field stripping the date off en route would be a great help.

Many thanks

Date/time Field Problems
I've developed a system that uses SQL Server as the DB backend. I'm having problems saving date/time fields from SOME- not all, workstations. The workstations I'm having problems with are all NT WORKSTATION 4.0, and the
native OS language is portuguese. The server is NT SERVER 4.0, and the native OS language is english. All machines have the same international settings,
portuguese(Brazilian). SQL Server is english version 6.5.

I've been using the SQL Trace utility to track what's been going on, and I
know that on the NT WORKSTATION machines, the dates get sent to the SQL Server in portuguese format, whereas on the other machines, it gets properly sent, in english format. I've read the booksonline, but just don't seem to figure out what and where to configure. Can anyone shed some light into this problem, ie, HOW EXACLTY TO CONFIGURE client workstations in order to get date/time problems solved?

Filtering On Parts Of A Date/time Field
Hi,I have a date/time field in a SQL2000 database, and what I would liketo do is to filter on a specific part of the field, for example thetime or hour.Supposing I have a set of data for the last 5 years and would like tofilter out any records which are outside working hours i.e. I wouldlike to show records where the time is between 9am and 5pm.Does anyone know if there is a simple way to do this in SQL? If yousimply don't specify the date part in the where clause (e.g. WHEREissuedatetime between '09:00:00' and '17:00:00') it defaults it to1900-01-01 so basically no data is returned.The only way I can see to do this is by using the DATEPART function,converting it to a varchar, appending 1900-01-01 on to it andconverting it to a datetime, and then using the where clause as statedabove. This is quite a long-winded way, however. Any other suggestions?Thanks,Matt

URGENT: How To Truncate Time Porttion Of Date Field
I have a date field that was populated with the GetDate() function. As you all know, GetDate() returns both the current date and time, so all of my values in this field contain both the date and time.

One of my programs tries to update records based on the DATE PORTION ONLY. Therefore an UPDATE... WHERE DATEFIELD='2000/12/31 12:00:00 AM' fails because it doesn't match the time portion of the value stored in the db.

The easiest fix short-term (I think) is to issue an UPDATE command against all of the records in this table to truncate the time portion of each value back to 12:00am. In Oracle I could do: UPDATE TABLENAME SET DATEFIELD = TRUNC(DATEFIELD). How can I do this in SQL 6.5?

Please help if you can. Thanks in advance for all of your responses.

SQL's America Date Format Conflict With Australian Date Format


I am trying get my VB6 application to insert a record into a table (SQL Express) which has a datetime column but it would not process if the data format is differ to *American Date format*.

The date() function in VB returns 15/11/2006 which is in Australian Date format (DD/MM/YYYY) according to my setting in "Reginal and Lanuage Option-> Locale 0> English (Australia)" setting.

I get the following error:

Msg 242, Level 16, State 3, Server KITSQLEXPRESS, 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.

My computer's locale is set to English (Australia) and I expect the datetime format would follow what is set in system locale

I've read an article somewhere on the net about how SQL 2005 eliminate the confusion of date conversion when read/write datetime records into a table...but it seems to me that it is still as in-flexible as MS Access

Is there a setting in the database that takes care of it?

Conversion Of Oracle Date Time To Sql Server Date Time In SSIS
This is driving me nuts..


I'm trying to extract some data from a table in oracle. The oracle table stores date and time seperately in 2 different columns. I need to merge these two columns and import to sql server database.


I'm struggling with this for a quite a while and I'm not able to get it working.


I tried the oracle query something like this,



this gives me an output of 20070511  23:06:30:000


the space in MM : SS is intentional here, since without that space it appread as smiley  


I'm trying to map this to datetime field in sql server 2005. It keeps failing with this error

The value could not be converted because of a potential loss of data


I'm struck with error for hours now.   Any pointers would be helpful.
