select frmRegistrationCSWText1, count(Distinct ID) from frmRegistrationCSW where entrytime = 'january' group by frmRegistrationCSWText1

I get the following error after running the above code:
Msg 241, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Conversion failed when converting date and/or time from character string.

How do I specifiy entrytime correctly.  datatype is datetime for that entrytime

You could always just use the month number:

where month(entrytime) = 1

Open in new window


Neither option of course, takes the year into account.
