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>?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
