Hello, I'm new to SQL Server, working for a non-profit computerizing a
lot of its data.
I imported a table of people's names, birth dates, etc. into SS2005
from Access, and the birth_date was imported as an Access date/time
field, giving it the datetime datatype in SQL.
The column values look like:
10/14/1964 12:00:00 AM
Where and how do I learn to specify that all fields like this should be
in 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 have
to be stored properly in the database table as column/field
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.
Hello 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.
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.
I have a huge question haha. I just simply want to make a number display differently before I insert it into the table. for instance in Access, you can simply say FORMAT(c,format) ex: FORMAT(@CHARMINS, 00000) and it should work that way.
How would I accomplish this in SQL server? Right now I have the number 30 displaying as 30.00 in the variable it is set to.... I want it to be shown as 00030.... and any other number that is like 30.00, I want it shown the same way. Like 100.00 would be 00100. Thank you.
Is it possible to format just part of a field? I've got a report that return a collection of users based on some search criteria. Bascially, you enter a string and the report returns all users with a user name or display name simialr to your search string. I wanted to highlight the part of the name that matches the search string.
I have a field where the data is stored with RTF. I know SQL Reporting Services cannot display it properly. Is there way to remove the RTF formatting codes through a function to just pull out the text and displya it in the text box?
I'm currently getting a date in this format 2001-10-08 10:35:45 (yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss) how would I convert the date to this format 2001-10-08/10:35:45 (yyyy-mm-dd/hh:mm:ss)? The only thing added was the / between the date and time.
How can I format the current date as yyyy-mm-dd and display it in a text box on the report. The FormatDateTime function only allows certain NamedFormat for the short and long dates but does not satisfy the above requirements. Any ideas?
Helo All - I would greatly appreciate some help formatting the values for my sproc. I need to call a sproc and pass it the values StartTime and EndTime from a web form. The web form uses 3 DDLs for the Start Hour, Start Minute and Start AM/PM as well as 3 DDLs for the End Hour, End Minute and End AM/PM. When I call the sproc, I get the error: SqlDateTime overflow. Must be between 1/1/1753 12:00:00 AM and 12/31/9999 11:59:59 PM. Here is the sample column data: 2:06 PM which is stored as nvarchar in the sql db Here is the Sub and the Sproc, Sub Protected Sub btnDateQuery_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnDateQuery.Click pnlFiltered.Visible = True pnlShowAll.Visible = FalseDim StartTime As DateTime Dim EndTime As DateTimeStartTime = ddlFromHour.SelectedValue + ":" + ddlFromMinute.SelectedValue + ":" + "00 " + ddlFromAMPM.SelectedValue EndTime = ddlToHour.SelectedValue + ":" + ddlToMinute.SelectedValue + ":" + "00 " + ddlToAMPM.SelectedValueStartTime = CDate("2:07:00 AM") EndTime = CDate("2:07:00 AM")Dim Query_TA As New dalDataFeedsdefsTableAdapters.spFilterExpectedEndTimeTableAdapterDim returncode As Integer = 0 Query_TA.GetExpectedEndTimeData(StartTime, EndTime) Dim Select_TA As New dalDataFeedsdefsTableAdapters.spDynamic_Basics_TblTableAdapterDim dv As New DataView Try dv = Query_TA.GetExpectedEndTimeData(StartTime, EndTime).DefaultView()Catch ex As Exception Response.Write(StartTime + " - " + EndTime) End TryWith DataFeedGridView .DataSource = dv .DataBind() End With End Sub SPROC ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[spFilterExpectedEndTime] -- Add the parameters for the stored procedure here @StartTime datetime,@EndTime datetime AS BEGIN -- SET NOCOUNT ON added to prevent extra result sets from -- interfering with SELECT statements.

I converted an Access Database to SQL Express. The dates were converted to datetime I'm using VWD 2005 Here is the source of my date and the query. sqlDate = (DateTime.Now.AddDays(-7)) sqlTxt = "SELECT Service_Orders.SStore_Assigned_Number, Store_Info.Store_Other, Service_Orders.PO_Number, Service_Orders.SWorkType, Service_Orders.Service_Order_Number, Service_Orders.SDate_Entered, Service_Orders.SContact, Service_Orders.SClosed FROM Service_Orders INNER JOIN Store_Info ON Service_Orders.Store_ID = Store_Info.Store_ID WHERE (Service_Orders.SDate_Entered >= CONVERT(DATETIME, '" + sqlDate + "', 101)) ORDER BY Service_Orders.SDate_Entered DESC" This retrurns 0 records. sqlDate = 11/28/2005 12:23:27 AM from the function above. The query will return records with : sqlDate = "2005-11-01 21:56:20" I tried changing the CONVERT(DATETIME, '" + sqlDate + "', 1XX from 100 to 120 with no luck I know this must be an easy fix, but it is beyond me. I need to know how to 1. convert my date to the dateformat from "11/28/2005 12:23:27 AM" to "2005-11-01 21:56:20" or 2. find out how to use the CONVERT(DATETIME, '" + sqlDate + "', 1XX properly Thanks for any help in advance!

I have around 1000 records each with two dates in a database in MSDE on my PC. I need to move the data to an on line SQL server and have tried to use Microsoft Web Data Administrator to do this. I can export the data from the MSDE to an SQL file but it will not import because the date format in the SQL file is "dd,mm,yyyy".
If I export from either the MSDE or the SQL server both produce files with date in the format "dd,mm,yy" and yet I cannot import either!?!
It is impractical to change all the dates by hand. I am on a budget and do not have access to anything other than free software.
I have a date string that is an integer 20040119 and I converted it to a varchar and then to date format-CONVERT(datetime, CAST(my_date AS varchar(8))) AS my_date My result is 2003-12-31 00:00:00.000. How can I now format this string so I don't get the time string at the end? Thanks
