Convert function error

Please help me to solve this error:

insert into table2
(_INTERNID, _STAMP2, _STAMP3, _TYPE)
select _INTERNID, _STAMP2, @result, 'Strategy' from table1

Server: Msg 260, Level 16, State 1, Line 10
Disallowed implicit conversion from data type varchar to data type binary, table 'db.dbo.RMPII', column '_STAMP3'. Use the CONVERT function to run this query.

Any idea?

Hi,

You can use the  your query like this..


case 1..If  _STAMP3 column in Table2 Datatype is varchar(50)

insert into table2
(_INTERNID, _STAMP2, _STAMP3, _TYPE)
select _INTERNID, _STAMP2, convert(@result,varchar(50)), 'Strategy' from table1

case 1..If  _STAMP3 column in Table2 Datatype is int

insert into table2
(_INTERNID, _STAMP2, _STAMP3, _TYPE)
select _INTERNID, _STAMP2, convert(@result,int), 'Strategy' from table1


case 1..If  _STAMP3 column in Table2 Datatype is Money
insert into table2
(_INTERNID, _STAMP2, _STAMP3, _TYPE)
select _INTERNID, _STAMP2, convert(@result,Money), 'Strategy' from table1

Try the above statements....Also check the data in that @result  variable .

Hi _stamp3 is binary. I used this way cast (@result as binary). but still get error. @result is some alphanumeric B5DK3YBZP

I am running this query in QA:
------------------------------------
declare @result varchar(100)
declare @hsecs numeric
declare @date datetime

set @hsecs = 1
set @date = getdate()
exec shortstamp @date, @hsecs, @result OUTPUT
select @result

insert into table2
(_INTERNID, _CHGDATE, _CHGTIME, _STAMP2, _STAMP3, _RMP_TYPE)
select _INTERNID, Convert(varchar(10),getdate(),101), Convert(varchar(10),getdate(),101), _STAMP2, cast(@result as binary), 'Strategy' from table1
-----------------------------------------

Server: Msg 8152, Level 16, State 11, Line 10
String or binary data would be truncated.
The statement has been terminated.
------------------------------------------------

please send the table structure for table1 and table2. I need to know what datatypes are you using..

a_tyaCommented:
my guess is that you are trying to insert a larger field in a smaller one, that's why the data is truncated.
Hope this helps u.

Hi ,

You that @result having alphanumaric values and you are trying insert into binary column.

My suggetion to change the datatype of   _STAMP3 column to Varchar. and the your query.

or
put where condition to check for numaric as below.

insert into table2
(_INTERNID, _CHGDATE, _CHGTIME, _STAMP2, _STAMP3, _RMP_TYPE)
select _INTERNID, Convert(varchar(10),getdate(),101), Convert(varchar(10),getdate(),101), _STAMP2, cast(@result as binary), 'Strategy' from table1 where ISNUMERIC(@result )=1
