SQL error

Dear,

I am getting error for my web page which is showing below view.

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80004005'
Invalid length parameter passed to the RIGHT function.

There was no issue before and no recent change made. Screen shot of error is also attached.

Please help to solve it. I am using SQL 2005.

Thanks.,

Most probably the issue is with data can you check if you have the column value less than 4 chars i.e.

select  ems_trackno
from dbo.s_ems_orders
where LEN(dbo.s_ems_orders.ems_trackno) <4
0
Haris DulicCommented:
If there is those less than 4 you can use something like this :

SELECT     dbo.shopcountries.countryname, dbo.orders.odate, dbo.orders.orderamount, dbo.orders.oemail, dbo.orders.oshipmethod, dbo.orders.oshipcost,

I posted the code which you can use . It is worked on case function which will check if the length is less than 4 than if it is the it will put 0 if not it will calculate len -4
