I have MSSQL and MySQL Linked together. This is a temporary solution. What I can't do is pull the date field from MySQL into SQL Server.

Query:
SELECT * FROM openquery(LINK, 'SELECT entry_date,territory  FROM thstew_orders.oetable_backup')

MySQL Data Type for DATE FIELD = DATE

Error Message I receive:
Msg 8114, Level 16, State 8, Line 1
Error converting data type DBTYPE_DBTIMESTAMP to datetime.

what can I do?

Thanks,
Jeff

MySQL is not my bag of tea but...

You could modify the field in SQL to varchar(30) or something like that and then you will see what you are getting. In order to convert this string to date, I can surely help, just paste what you get in the varchar field.

Marten,

I ended up resolving the issue with a solution I figured out. Something called QA. It seems that the end users have entered in incorrect date formats such as 0007 as the year. That's why MSSQL couldn't figure it out.

Thanks for your support.

It turned out that the data needed to be QA. The solution would have worked if the QA wasn't the problem.
