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.

Date Time Formatting to a specific dateformat

  
Hello All,I have been struggling with this for a long time. I have a form in which there is a textbox using an ajax calender extender. Now, the problem is that, I want to take the Date value which is string format and format it to a specific date format before inserting it into the database. The following is the core problem:Dim MDate as string=txtMeetingDate.Textdim d as new Datetime' I want to convert the d to a datetime using the Mdate/// The problem is that I don't know what's the date format in the TextBox because users can use any time format they want, it is based on their windows settings!!!So, I am struggling to change my String (MDate) into a DateTime in the same format the user have and then convert it into my format:"dd/MM/yyyy" and after I have the date in the correct format, I want to change it back to string and save it in the database.I am doing this so that I have the same dateformat saved in my database.Any Ideas? ThanksAMB

SQL error: Conversion failed when converting date and/or time from character string.

  
I hope someone can advise on the issue I'm having.

This SQL worked beautiful until I added in @startdt and @enddt and this section >> AND [Selldate] BETWEEN ' + @startdt + ' AND ' + @enddt + '

By adding in this condition, I now get the following error:

Msg 241, Level 16, State 1, Line 8
Conversion failed when converting date and/or time from character string.

I have tried changed variables to type = date and various iterations of date formatting, casting with no success. The date in the table is clean as a whistle.

(The CONVERT function is being used in setup for a PIVOT SQL which needs  VARCHAR for column headers)

Thanks in advance for your help, 
JR

declare @itemID varchar(20)
declare @startdt varchar(12)
declare @enddt varchar(12)
set @itemID = ''

want to display 24 hours time and date with datatype Datetime (Not String) in SSRS

  

Hi All,

I want to display 24 hours time and date in SSRS & for that I am using Format(now,"MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss") but I am using this expression in Parameter, where I need to define datatype of that parameter as DateTime, not string. For Expression Format(now,"MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss"), If I use DateTime datatype, It is showing error but working with String datatype.

For example:

I have parameter To Date  and value of this parameter should be 10/11/2010 13:09:16 (To Date: 10/11/2010 23:09:16) , not in AP or PM format and datatype of this parameter, want to keep DateTime that I can select value from Calender.

Please suggest me how I can achieve this?. I don't want to do it in stored Procedure side, want to do it in report side.


Thanks Shiven:)

Date and Time Functions in SQLSERVER

  
Date and time functions allow you to manipulate columns and variables with DATETIME and SMALLDATETIME data types.

1 DATEPART Function
2 DATENAME Function
3 DAY, MONTH, and YEAR Functions
4 GETDATE and GETUTCDATE Functions
5 DATEADD Functions
6 DATEDIFF Function
7 More SQL Server Functions

Data Types - Date and Time in SqlServer

  
Date and time values can be stored with either the DATETIME or SMALLDATETIME data type. The difference between the two is that SMALLDATETIME supports a smaller range of dates and does not give the same level of precision when accounting for time. The DATETIME data type can hold values from January 1st of 1753 to December 31st of 9999. The time is stored to the 1 three hundredths of a second and each value takes up 8 bytes of storage. The SMALLDATETIME data type can hold values between January 1st 1900 and June 6th of 2079. The time is tracked to the minute and each value takes up 4 bytes of storage. The majority of business applications can live happily with SMALLDATETIME, however, if you are in an environment where each second matters or you need to make estimates to the distant future (or past) then you have to resort to DATETIME. If you fail to specify the time when inserting a value into a DATETIME or SMALLDATETIME column, a default of midnight is used. If you fail to specify the date portion the default of January 1, 1900 is used.

Built-in Functions - Date and Time Functions

  
Date and time functions allow you to manipulate columns and variables with DATETIME and SMALLDATETIME data types.

Essential SQL Server Date, Time and DateTime Functions

  
The essential date and time functions that every SQL Server database should have to ensure that you can easily manipulate dates and times without the need for any formatting considerations at all.

Date/Time Conversions Using SQL Server

  
There are many instances when dates and times don't show up at your doorstep in the format you'd like it to be, nor does the output of a query fit the needs of the people viewing it. One option is to format the data in the application itself. Another option is to use the built-in functions SQL Server provides to format the date string for you.

Date and Time Data Types and Functions

  
The following sections in this topic provide an overview of all Transact-SQL date and time data types and functions. For information and examples that are common to date and time data types and functions

date formatting

  

I have a 3 field table in sql server express and one of the columns is a date.

I'm trying to pull that in and publish to a gridview, but when I do it comes in with the date and minutes and seconds, etc.

How can I format that so that I only publish MM/DD/YYYY?

thanks in advance

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


Mike


Convert Update Date/Time to VB.NET

  

Hello,

I was wondering if someone could convert this into VB.NET for me.  I'm not a PHP pro and not entirely sure what's happening here nor do I know how to get this to display the same way.

The new field is within a DetailsView, so you can give me example code as well, I'll greatly appreciate it.

Thanks.. -Jeff

PHP Code:

function updFormat($tStamp) {
	$tsTime = (strftime('%I', $tStamp) + 0) . strftime(':%M %p', $tStamp);
	
	// 86400 == # of seconds in a day
	$tsDays = floor($tStamp / 86400);
	$nowDays = floor(time() / 86400);
	if ($tsDays == $nowDays) $updTime = "Today at $tsTime";
	elseif ($tsDays == $nowDays - 1) $updTime = "Yesterday at $tsTime";
	else $updTime = strftime('%b ', $tStamp) . (strftime('%d', $tStamp) + 0) . strftime(', %Y' , $tStamp);

	return $updTime;
}
