I am using a dreamweaver extension to export data to excel but it has a bug and gives an error upon a large number.
Workaround is to select the fields for the recordset and convert them into 'string' so that the error is avoided, they said I should add "number" (quotes) before and after the number.

How can I do this ?  this is my select statement:

--

SELECT a.UserId, a.UserType, a.FirmId, a.EmployerId, a.LastNm, a.FirstNm, a.DobD, a.SSN, a.Email, a.Nationality, a.NiStatus, a.ExpiresOnD, a.Docstatusstat, a.NIVMaxStatus, a.I94DateD, a.I94, a.I797Date, a.I797, a.EadDate, a.Ead, a.ApDate, a.ApNum, a.Iap66Date, a.Iap66, a.GcDate, a.GC, a.I20Date, a.I20, a.PpExpireOnD, a.PpNum, a.PobCountry, b.MaidenNm as Employer, d.MailStr + ' ' + d.MaidenNm as Attorney, a.PobCountry, a.archivedcont, a.contactstatus, a.Docstatusstat, e.Docstatdesc,a.Dswg, a.VisaExp, a.VisaType, a.VisaStatus
FROM users a Left join users as b on a.employerid = b.userid Inner join attscont as c on a.userid = c.userid Inner join users as d on c.attyid = d.userid left join Documentstatus as e on e.documentstatus = a.Docstatusstat
WHERE a.usertype = 'contact' and a.firmid = MMColParam AND d.userid = MMColParam2 AND a.Archivedcont LIKE 'MMColParam3' and a.Contactstatus LIKE 'MMColParam4' AND ISNULL (a.FirstNm,'') LIKE 'MMColParam5%' and ISNULL (a.LastNm,'') LIKE 'MMColParam6%' and ISNULL (a.SSN,'') LIKE 'MMColParam7%' and ISNULL (a.email,'') LIKE 'MMColParam8%' and ISNULL (a.Nationality,'') LIKE 'MMColParam9%' AND ISNULL (a.Nistatus,'') LIKE 'MMColParam10%'
ORDER BY MMColParam500

you can do this to convert a numeric or integer column to string

SELECT '"' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),IntegerColumnName) + '"'

what i'm doing here is inserting " (double quotes with in single quotes) and concatenating it with integer column convert to a string

change the integerColumnname with your numeric or integer column and you can also change the length to what ever you want ex: VARCHAR(10) to VARCHAR(50)
