DateTime/String Conversion

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

I have a few date fields on my report and i cannot get them to convert in the correct format.

The default is 08/28/2010 2:30:00 PM and I have used CONVERT(Varchar, EndDate, 103) to convert it to 28/08/2010. But the new date comes out as text format (string) when I copy results into Excel and I want it to stay as a Date type.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks,

ST

string to datetime conversion using date parameters in SSRS

  

Hello, I have a database field that I am pulling that is type string, but the format of each value is mm/dd/yyyy.  I want to convert this to a datetime format (minus the time) so that i can compare this value to a parameter date range (begin date and end date) that are type datetime so that i can use the calendar control in my report.  i've tried in my select statement to use select.....convert(datetime, stringfieldname, 101), but I get an error that says "Conversion failed when converting datetime to character string". 

I am also open to converting the datetime parameters to strings to do the comparison, but not sure the best way to do this either.

thanks!

Conversion from string to type 'Date' is not valid

  

Hi

Im receiving a strange error Error Message: Conversion from string "15/08/2010 22:21:35" to type 'Date' is not valid.

I know this is generally down to cultural date formats etc, however the reason this is strange is it just randomly occured twice in the last week, the website has been running since october and nothing has changed,

The error constantly occured until the IIS was reset and recompilled the site, its been running fine since, however im just trying to figure out what could cause such an error to occur.

I've narrowed it down to a line of code which is:

bktime = DReader.Item("Bktime").ToString

bktime = Year(CDate(bktime)) & "-" & fmt(Month(CDate(bktime)), 2) & "-" & fmt(Day(CDate(bktime)), 2)


Has anyone else encountered this randomly occuring and is there anything i can put in place to prevent this in future?


Cheers

ASP.NET DateTime Conversion strange behaviour

  

Hi,

I am working on ASP.NET web application where we are using javascript calendar to accept the date in textboxes. The date format is dd/mm/yyyy. The application is running in US and UK environments.

I am facing issues in US environment while storing the dates so I have added 2 keys in config file viz culture which will be either en-US or en-GB depending on the deployment location and baseCulture which will always be en-GB.

In the code, I have added a condition which checks if culture and baseCulture values are not matching then do the conversion of date in US format.

But I have found that the code converts the date from dd/mm/yyyy to mm/dd/yyyy when the key is baseCulture (en-GB) and it throws FormatException when key is culture (en-US).

I am bit confused by this behaviour. Is this normal? Can any one please explain more about this? Note: I am working on a machine which has en-US as language and culture

<add key="culture" value="en-US" />
<add key="baseCulture" value="en-GB" />
// This line works and converts the date from 26/08/2010 to 08/26/2010
// Here the baseCulture is en-GB.
DateTime dt = DateTime.Parse(txtCurrentDate,baseCulture)

// This line throws FormatException. culture

I posted it in C# General because I thought that the subject was not Sql Smo related, although I use Smo extensively even in this routine for connection. Unfortunately after a few days no constructive suggestion has been advanced. Two posts the thread collected are not helpful.

Conversion from type 'TextBox' to type 'String' is not valid

  
I have a FormView that allows a user to register for a company event. I want to do a couple of things with this form. 1. I need to write this data to a MS SQL database 2. I need to send an email confirmation of their registration to their email. I know how to do both of these things, but i am having trouble doing both at the same time. It would be nice if I could do it in one click, but I coded it into two pages to try to help simplify it. The first page allows the user to input their information into a formview and when they click the submit button, it places those answers into session variables:Protected Sub InsertButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs) Session("FirstName") = Me.FormView1.FindControl("FirstName") Session("LastName") = Me.FormView1.FindControl("LastName")  <li> <label> First Name</label> <asp:TextBox ID="FirstName" runat="server" class="text-box" Text='<%# Bind("FirstName") %>' /> </li> </ul> </div>

Hello, I am trying to figure out the best way to convert a string object into a DateTime with only using the year.I have something like:Date Time HSYear = DateTime.ParseExact(HighSchoolyear, "yyyy", System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture); But it is still giving a "String was not a recognized as a valid DateTime."In the full context, I have a webpage with a formview on it and within the formview is a TextBox control that is taking a user input such as "1999"  then an ObjectDataSource picks it up and runs it through a BLL. And within the BLL is where I am trying to convert it before it gets inserted into the database.
