Sir, I am using below statement and it is showing error following:

select MAI=max(acc_id)+1, x.Paraccountid from
(select acc_id, paraccountid, title from AC_CHARTOFACC where paraccountid ='1002001001')x
group by x.paraccountid


Error:
Server: Msg 248, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The conversion of the varchar value '1002001001001' overflowed an int column. Maximum integer value exceeded.

Please help how to resolve this problem.

Rgds.

select MAI=cast(max(cast(acc_id as bigint))+1 as varchar(100)), x.Paraccountid from
(select acc_id, paraccountid, title from AC_CHARTOFACC where paraccountid ='1002001001')x
group by x.paraccountid

Try this query....

If its a varchar field, you have to convert it to a numeric field

We can make use of CONVERT funtion or CAST function for this purpose...

Convert(data type,field name)
Cast (field name as data type)

select MAI=max(convert(numeric,acc_id))+1, x.Paraccountid from
(select acc_id, paraccountid, title from AC_CHARTOFACC where paraccountid ='1002001001') x
group by x.paraccountid
