Hi Experts,
I would like to replace the year part in a date in SQL Server.
I've tried the following, but I get this error message:
Msg 242, Level 16, State 3, Line 1
The conversion of a varchar data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range value.

UPDATE VacationBid
   SET Day1 = REPLACE(Day1,'2014','1015')
 WHERE Day1 LIKE '%2014%'

Open in new window


Thank you for your help

Perhaps the medievial cultures in the year 1015 do not wish you to change dates.

Works on my 2008R2 box, assuming that the column you're trying to change is a date:
CREATE TABLE #tmp (dt date) 

INSERT INTO #tmp (dt) 
VALUES ('2014-01-01'), ('2014-03-01'), ('2010-01-07'), ('2009-01-01')

UPDATE #tmp 
SET dt = REPLACE(dt, '2014', '2015') 
WHERE dt LIKE '%2014%'

SELECT * FROM #tmp

Open in new window


Perhaps it's a leap year issue, as the below returns a type conversion error
SELECT CAST('1015-02-29' as date) 

Open in new window

you really want the year to read 1015 ???

or was that a typo ?
i think your looking for 2015

UPDATE VacationBid
   SET Day1 = DATEADD(YEAR,+1,Day1)
 WHERE Day1(YEAR) LIKE '%2014%'

Very funny!
My users didn't want to travel back in time just to take vacation in year 1015.
Sorry, it was just a typo.

We aim to please.

Every once in awhile we get a question about Access 200, and it takes awhile to explain that the Romans' first couple of desktop database applications left a lot to be desired, and that 202 was really the first usable application.

When you blow two grand on family photos there's a strong desire to justify spending the money.

The previous photo was after a Tough Mudder I ran a couple of years ago.
If you think it's a better photo for EE then I'll put it back.  
You're the first one that's commented on it.
