Hi,

It seems like your update is between to different number formats and that in some case the conversion is not possible

(for example converting a Int to a SmallInt)

plese post your update query and the table definition ...

Hi  mmusante
thank you for showing interest

My table structure is like this
Table Name - > Remit

Columns
   Remit_No       Numeric(7),
   Remit_Date    SmaleDateTime,
   Remit_Curr    Varchar(3),
   Remit_amt     Numeric(18,3),
   Remit_Batch   Numeric(7)

First I'm updating the table with amount at that point of time it is getting updated. Then
I'm updating the table with a query Update Remit set Remit_Batch = 17 where Remit_No = 76584
and Remit_Date = '2004-04-09'

Regards

Try changing the date condition to ...
Remit_Date = {d '2004-04-09'}

Hi spk2shankar:
> and Remit_Date = '2004-04-09'
This definitely is wrong.
Have you tried
and Remit_Date = CONVERT(DATETIME, '2004-04-09 00:00:00', 102))

There does not appear to be anything illegal about this statement:
Update Remit
set Remit_Batch = 17
where Remit_No = 76584 and Remit_Date = '2004-04-09'

So I would suggest you check to see where exactly you are getting the error and if possible attempt to duplicate it in SQL Query Analyzer.

Also, are you going to return to the following open question?
