JExcel date format
Posted on 2007-03-22
I am using JExcel to read data from an excel file published on the web and put it in our internal database. One of the columns in the file is date of format (mm/dd/2003). I do something like:
String theloaddate = null;
theloaddate = cell.getContents();
then I write "theloaddate" to a temporary csv file and bulk insert the file to a database table.
I got a SQLException as below:
[Microsoft][SQLServer 2000 Driver for JDBC][SQLServer]Bulk load data conversion error (type mismatch or invalid character for the specified codepage) for row 289, column 1 (LoadDate).
I checked the temporary file and found the format of "theloaddate" column somehow got changed to dd/mm/yyyy which is fine, but I just can't see what's the problem with row 289. It looks exactly the same with any other rows.
Please help. Thanks.
