No results are returned when I run your query.

I am setting the time value as well as the date value of my column if this causes an issue?

...and the time is being set in 24hr, i.e. a typical value that I'm wanting to delete is 15/07/2009 15:00:00. But obviously it's not being deleted as I get the error.

The problem is not in your table but in the code you're passing from ASP. Have you checked the link I've suggested above?

What is the datatype of that column either datetime or smalldatetime?

smalldatetime wont support that value. It supports till 06-06-2079 only.

aneesh,
    SELECT *
FROM urTable
WHERE  ISDATE(urDateColumn) = 0

This will work fine for both datetime and smalldatetime.

Shepwedd,
   Can you kindly confirm this one

I still think the problem is not in the table. If I understood correctly he's trying to delete a record, so the record is already in the table and is valid date. i.e. doing a select with ISDATE will not return any records because the table contains valid dates.

I feel the problem is with the parameter being received from ASP. Probably the asker is sending a '01/01/0001' date which is not supported in SQL. Again, have a look at the links I've suggested.
