Great Plains 2013 - PM30300 table

I need to pull data from the PM30300 table but need to pull a certain range of dates due to the amount of data that we have.  The  docdate is the format 2015-8-15 00:00:00:000. How do I need to format the date in the SQL statement?

You can either use the BETWEEN keyword or comparison operators (>= and <=).

SELECT * FROM PM30300 WHERE DOCDATE BETWEEN '2015-08-15' AND '2015-08-31'

Let me know if that works for you.

Error message -- Conversion failed when converting date/and or time from character string. With the docdate format like I stated above, you can't just use docdate between

I don't have any problems executing the SQL statement in Steve's comment against our Dynamics GP data. Please see results below:
Can you post a screenshot of your SQL Server Management Studio screen showing the query and the error message? Perhaps that will help us determine what the issue might be.

As a separate note, all GP dates are stored this way in SQL, as they are all datetime data types. There should be no issue referring to the date only in your searches, I do this all day every day.

Very interesting situation.  The datetime data type looks correct, so I'm wondering if there is a setting issue (or an uncommon date setting) on the SQL Server.

Can you please run this statement and post the results?


My speculation is that you have an atypical date format setting and SQL Server is unable to interpret the 'yyyy-mm-dd' format in the query.

Please try this statement to see if it works (adjust the date to a proper date range for your data):

SELECT * FROM PM30300 WHERE DOCDATE BETWEEN CAST('2017-08-15' AS datetime) AND CAST('2017-08-31' AS datetime)

Would you mind running this statement and posting the results?  I'm curious to know if any of the settings contributed to the date formatting issue and would like to research it.
