MSSQL Updategram

Here is my updategram:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<root xmlns:updg="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xml-updategram">
<updg:sync>
<before>
  <msj_currency_v2 currencyID="1" currencyName="US dollar" currencySymbol="s" currencyStatus="1" />
</before>
<after>
  <msj_currency_v2 currencyID="1" currencyName="US dollar" currencySymbol="$" currencyStatus="1" />
</after>
</updg:sync>
</root>

I am posting it into the following MSSQL table:

currencyID     int     4
currencyName     varchar     100
currencySymbol     varchar     3
currencyStatus     int     4

The updategram errors when currencySymbol="$".

The error via VB test app:

"disallowed implicit conversion from datatype money to datatype varchar .. use the convert function to run this query."

How do i run the "convert function" inside an updategram????

Or is a schema required .. if so can you please provide.

Thanks

No idea, looks OK to me.

But, the namespace is not the default namespace. Don't you need to then say <updg:before> and <updg:after>?

i must have omitted <updg:before> and <updg:after>

The problem is posting a "$" into a varchar field via an updategram ... MSSQL tries to convert it to datatype money and errors.

If i post "A$" or "$u" the updategram works fine.

If MSSQL doesn't want to accept $ could it be that US$ is actually wanted and that they finally have got the localids sorted? No, I don't really know, sorry.
