Convert string from textbox into type money SQL Server 2005

I usually use SQL Server 2008 and the following code works perfectly with it so I think its an SQL Server 2005 thing but am not 100% sure.

I am getting an amount of money from a textbox and inputting it into a database table with a field 'money'

am using a stored procedure - it works fine with every other field apart from the money field.

the code below doesn't work (i'm passing through a textbox (string))

I tried using CONVERT(MONEY, @Amount) instead of just @Amount but it made no difference.

anyone know what i'm missing?


p.s. - before someone asks I have checked that it is passing the correct textbox etc.
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[procedurename]
	@Amount money = null
AS
BEGIN
from
	SET NOCOUNT ON;

	INSERT INTO Table1 (Amount)
	VALUES(@Amount);
	
	SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY();

nope doesn't work, says 'incorrect syntax near ',' (thats the commar with the 1 after it)

if i remove the ",1" bit it says "Disallowed implicit conversion from data type varchar to data type money"

that brings up an error saying cannot convert from data type varchar to data type money - which makes sense as what you have told me to do is convert a string to varchar and put varchar into a field which is of data type money... which doesn't really make sense.

anyway i tired it with CONVERT(MONEY,@Amount,1) instead bit it doesn't work

Can you check if this works:

      INSERT INTO Table1 (Amount)
      VALUES(CONVERT(money,'$1,000'));
      
      SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY();

If it does,then I dont think its SQL 2005 issue, but data issue.

Thanks.

thanks looks like it is a data issue, strange thing is though that it does work perfectly with sql server 2008. I'll have a look and see exactly what it is passing to it.

thank you - got it working :)
was a silly mistake - sometimes all it takes is someone to point the obvious and it makes it so much easier to find it!
