When I return a recordset from the database and it has a uniqueidentifier. It returns the guid with the squirly brackets around the guid eg.
If I take this guid and do and insert with this guid into another table on my database. Everything works fine.
Now we have a staging server. We backed up and restored my database to this server. Put all the same dll's on this machine.
But when I try do an insert using this guid with the brackets around it, I get the following error: "Error converting a varchar to a uniqueidentifier". If I change my connection string to point to the staging servers database, I don't get the same error.
The staging server and my machine are both running the same dll's and have the same version of SQL.
Does anyone have any idea, why I would be getting this problem.
