Dear Experts

I have a recordset within dreamweaver as follows:

SELECT *
FROM dbo.propertylistingresults_col
WHERE pPrice <= MMColParam and pPrice >= MMColParam1 and (GETDATE() - pDateEntered) < MMColParam2

However when trying to display the page I receive the following error message:



Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers

 error '80040e57'

[Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0][SQL Server]Arithmetic overflow error converting expression to data type datetime.
 
/propertyresults_quick.asp, line 37


Can anyone advise me how to amend the necessery within the recordset SQL query to eliminate this.

Thanks

Please use Datediff or Dataddd function instead of (GETDATE() - pDateEntered) for comparison.
Its always safe to use them.

are you trying to do some date calculations?

What data type is pDateEntered and MMColParam2?

You've got a value in "pDateEntered" that is not a valid datetime.


SELECT *
FROM dbo.propertylistingresults_col
WHERE
    pPrice <= MMColParam AND
    pPrice >= MMColParam1 AND
    1 = CASE
        WHEN ISDATE(pDateEntered) = 0 THEN 0
        WHEN (GETDATE() - pDateEntered) < MMColParam2 THEN 1
        ELSE 0 END

Hi

pDateEntered is Date and MMColparam2 is numeric.

What I am trying to calculate is the number of days between the to dates to a numeric figure and then return the records where the result is < MMColParam2

Thanks

use cast or convert to varchar, and the trim the line to the first 10 letters

instead of the full dat 10/10/2012 01:30:33 it will just be 10/10/2012

You try this assuming you want minutes and seconds as well.

WHEN convert(varchar,GETDATE()) - convert(varchar,pDateEntered)) < MMColParam2 THEN 1
