This stored procedure was working on Sql Server 2000. However it is not working on Sql Server 2005.

How can i correct it?

The full error is :
Msg 291, Level 16, State 1, Procedure itemleri_bul, Line 32
CAST or CONVERT: invalid attributes specified for type 'int'

CREATE procedure itemleri_bul 
@StrUserID varchar(30)

@duar int,
@StackSize1 int,
@Sira int,
@Row int,
@name varchar(100),
@extname varchar(100),
@ext int
 
 
    set @i = 14*0+1
    set @length = 401
 
select @row=count(*) from userdata where struserid=@StrUserID

Sorry to be a pain, but can you show some of the data you're trying to convert? That might really help understand that block of code there...

I'd start troubleshooting this by braking the casts into individual pieces that get stored in temporary variables, to see exactly which cast is failing.

That would let you examine the data for that field, to see what can't be cast.

Your statement includes a cast "as int(4)".  In SQL 2000, due to a bug in the parser, this worked.  However, the syntax should simply be "as int" - if you want a different size, specify bigint or smallint.

Yes, it'll be the int(4). I scanned your code yesterday looking for this type of thing, but didn't notice it. Well done to bhess1 for noticing it.

It wasn't easy.  I have taken to copying the statements pasted here and breaking them down through indentation, like below (this is the code above) which helps make issues like this much more obvious.
CREATE procedure itemleri_bul 
@StrUserID varchar(30)
AS
DECLARE
    @length int, -- stritem uzunluu
    @i int, -- item'in stritem deki yeri

    @dur int,
    @duar int,
    @StackSize1 int,
    @Sira int,
    @Row int,
    @name varchar(100),
    @extname varchar(100),
    @ext int
 
set @i = 14*0+1
set @length = 401
 
select @row=count(*) from userdata where struserid=@StrUserID
 
delete from itemler where struserid=@StrUserID
 
if @row>0 
begin
 
    WHILE @i < @length
    Begin
     
        Select @dwid=
