How to convert string to double

Hello All!! Since I am pretty new to C sharp I am unable to solve simple conversion from string to double. Example would be like this: string sVal = "-7.0"; //This is negative number. double dVal = 0.0; Now I need to assign dVal with value from sVal and I did try those examples but none of them worked. dVal = double.parse(sval); nor it worked this way dVal = System.Convert.ToDouble(sVal); Please advise what am I doing wrong and how should I solve this pretty simple problem. Thanks in advance.

decimal place problem in convert string to double


Hi guys, i have a strange error creaping into my web app but am unsure as to how to fix it.  When i run this code on my debug workstation it works fine but when i transfer it to my server things seam to go wrong.

dev station (windows 7) + VS2010
regional and language settings all set to uk
server (windows 2008r2)
regional and language settings all set to uk

What seams to be happening is that when converting a string to a double it works correctly on the dev environment but moves the decimal place to the end on the server.

example code(vb)

dim lat as string = "52.983829"
dim long as string = "-0.036500"

dim latint as double = lat
dim longint as double = long

now on the dev server the value of latint is 52.983829 as you might expect but on when published to the server it becomes 52983829.0

the same with longint on the dev staion it is -0.036500 but on the server it becomes -36500.0

i get equally confusing problems if i try to change it to an integer instead.


can anyone help point be in the right direction?

Varchar string to int - how to convert empty cells to nulls

Hi, I have a large table from which I want to convert certain columns from varchar to int while loading the table to another table. However, I run into problems when the input column contains empty cells. The SSIS data conversion data flow item can't handle these so I tried the script component. With the script component I can convert these empty cells to zeros but after that I'd need to use SQL update to update the zeros to nulls which in the case of a large table with over 3 million rows takes unnecessarily long. So, is there another way?

Convert a string (from xml) into date time

Is there a simple command to take this string: 2010-09-09T17:00:00.000Z and turn it into a date time? It is a date time value that is passed to us in an xml document, it has a type of 'unitless', when I read it I need to set a dateTime variable to this date and tim, I can parse it, but perhaps there is a simple single command that is already written for just such a thing. Thanks. 

Need to convert query string(date - 09/15/2010) to a text format - yyyymmdd

I am fairly new to C # and need some assistance with a form page.  I have created a simple form that requires the user to select a beginning date and ending date.  I then pass the values to my code behind page via query strings.  I have them passing, but I need the format to be change to a different format.  Unfortunately the database does not use the standard date format.  It requires the date to be in a text format as YYYYMMDD.Form: <tr> <td> Beginning Date:</td> <td><asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="begDate"></asp:TextBox> <asp:Image ID="Image2" ImageUrl="~/images/calendar_schedulehs.png" runat="server" /></td> </tr> Code Behind: protected void createReport_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { StringBuilder url = new StringBuilder("Report/TopCustomer.aspx?"); url.Append("BegDate=" + begDate.Text); url.Append("&EndDate=" + endDate.Text); url.Append("&Brnch=" + ddlLocation.SelectedValue); Response.Redirect(url.ToString()); Current URL: TopCustomer.aspx?BegDate=09/15/2010&EndDate=09/30/2010&Brnch=300I need to have the above URL change to:TopCustomer.aspx?BegDate=20100915&E

convert any string to float

hi friends, i am struggling to convert simple string to float here. It is not very simple. I've database which is free text in the front end so people can enter any result. it should be numeric. It can be 0.1 or 3,4 or 33,,22 or 22.2 or 4.5 i can handle all combination when covert into float but when it comes to 3,4 or 22,,33 then it is difficult to conver into float. When i use isnumeric in where clause then it thinks 3,4 is numeric and then it cant convert that text into float. any suggestion? Thanks.

Convert SSIS DateTime to a String


Being a newbie to SSIS I'm not sure of the most efficient method of converting a DateTime object to a String.


I'm from a C# background where this would be easy using DateTime.ToString("YYYYMMdd"). I want to use the date in a file name so don't require most of the parts.


I'm sure I could do this using a script task to produce a file name for each row of data in my table and add that filename to the dataset but it seem like overkill to do something that should be simple. Also as I'm supposed to be getting to grips with SSIS I shouldn't keep running back to what I know.


My current approach is to derive a column and build up an expression to convert the date into a string. The only problem being that it doesn't work.

The expression I'm working with is:

(DT_WSTR, 50)([OrgName] ) + "_" + (DT_WSTR, 50)( [PayrollName] ) + (DT_WSTR, 4)(YEAR( [ProcessedDate] )) + (DT_WSTR, 2)(MONTH( [ProcessedDate] )) + (DT_WSTR, 2)(DAY( [ProcessedDate] )) ".txt"


Can anyone see where I'm going wrong?
