Hi,

The case is :

I use SLQ Server 7.0 as database for my application and I'm trying to insert dates passes from a form into a datetime field in a table. However EVERYTIME I do so the dates get completely 'f..... up'. I've tried almost everything, ex. CreateODBCDate, Dateformat LSDateformat functions etc.

THE DATEFORMAT has to be dd-mm-yyy ( DANISH STYLE )

I think it maby has something to do with the Database settings...does anyone know how to set this up ?

Hi

I think you have set your sql's dateformat as GB or US,
Use 'set dateformat dmy', more details in sql help file.

I feel your pain, my brotha!  I had the same frustrating experience.  Here's what I came up with.

Since CF passes everything as a string; pass it to the stored procedure as a string. Then convert it to your date type before inserting it.

The variable that is going to accept my date/time value is:
        @event_date     varchar(50)

After the first BEGIN I declare my date/time variable and then convert the varchar to the date/time data type:
        declare @ConvertDate datetime
        select  @ConvertDate = Convert(datetime, @event_date)

Then, simply insert/update your date/time field using the converted @ConvertDate variable.

If you are not using stored procedures, I have had pretty good luck by simply surrounding my CF date/time variable with single quotes:
        myDateTimeField = '#Variables.dDateTime#'

I'm also in your boat, using Australian dates...grrr..

I resorted to formatting the dates in literal format and dumping them into the ODBCDateTime('1 Jan 2002') function.

or you can use this sort of thing (If it works on your server)

<CFSet temp = SetLocale("English (Australian)")>
<CFSet Date2 = CreateODBCDateTime(LSDateFormat(Date,'dd/mm/yy'))>

PS:
Australia Style for dates dd/mm/yyyy
locale = English (Australian)

German Style for dates dd-mm-yyyy
locale = German (Standard)

Hi there,

<cfset countjan="#ListValueCount(testlist,'01','/,')#">

u can "n" delimeters for a list & in ur case :

use 2 delimeters to get the desired output - it surely would give u the right answere.

also enclose '01' in single quote !!!
