Hello Experts,

I have the below query in vb.net application and it gives an error "Error converting varchar to float"

 SELECT  TOP 1 * FROM tblSystemEmployee WHERE Empid=" & Empid & " AND  CAST(CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),Salary,101) AS FLOAT) <" & Mp & " ORDER BY CAST(CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),Salary,101) AS FLOAT) DESC "

Open in new window

How do i resolve this?

Thank you!

Why are you converting salary to a varchar and then casting to a float?

Thanks!. I went back and checked the database schema. There were changes in it and I don't need  that query any more. Thanks for your comment....provoked me to research...
