By run no more, do you mean you are getting an error, or that you are not receiving expected results?

getting an error but in 2014 engine, not in 2000 where my application was before
"The conversion of a varchar data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range value."

in 2000 works perfectly, please help!!

I suspect the date setting is different, ie mm/dd/yyyy verses dd/mm/yyyy.

Try adding the number format to your convert functions:
convert(datetime,estimado, 103) <<103 is the dd/mm/yyyy format.

You can see the full list of date formats here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms187928.aspx

You might also need to convert the '02/09/2015' to a datetime type using the same date format.

For starters, correct spelling in your question title and body would help.

Try this..
insert into chequetmp 
select * 
from nopagados 
where convert (datetime,estimado)>= '20150209' and convert(datetime,estimado) <= '20150210'

Open in new window

One reason this wouldn't be working is that SQL 2000 had only the date data type (without the time), and versions after 2008 have date and time.  Note the change to 20150210.  See SQL Server Date Styles (formats) using CONVERT() for an excellent reference.

Also, 'INSERT INTO table SELECT *' is considered a poor programming practice, as it depends on both tables having the same columns and data types, and if that's not completely correct then this will generate an error.  Better to spell out every column.

>"The conversion of a varchar data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range value."

Just for kicks and giggles, let's flush out any values in estimado that can't be converted to a date, so run this in 2012
SELECT estimado
FROM nopagados 
WHERE ISDATE(estimado) = 0

Open in new window

Or this will work in any SSMS
CREATE TABLE #tmp (val varchar(10)) 

INSERT INTO #tmp (val) VALUES ('01-01-2010'), ('05-24-2016'), ('12-25-0001'), ('banana') 
-- All values
SELECT * FROM #tmp
-- Values that can't be converted to a date
SELECT * FROM #tmp WHERE ISDATE(val) = 0

Open in new window

So if any rows are returned, then you're going to have to figure out what to do with these non-date values such that they can be converted to date format.

And just to 'check the box', dates should be in a date/datetime data type, and not a character data type.

i cant convert to 20150209 cos come from a varchar formated as / /

help!!
Jim Horn

I don't have a SQL 2000 box in front of me, so can't test this, but instead of this

convert (datetime,estimado)

use this

CAST(estimado) as date
Ernesto

ASKER
insert into chequetmp select * from nopagados where  cast (estimado as date)  >= '02/09/2015' and cast (estimado as date)  <= '05/09/2015'

Jim, One reason this wouldn't be working is that SQL 2000 had only the date data type (without the time), and versions after 2008 have date and time.   is wrong, it is exactly the other way round ;-).

the 103 it works, but do not give me the right query
Shaun Kline

If the original field, estimado, is a varchar field formatted as dd/mm/yyyy, have you tried just:
WHERE estimado = '02/09/2015'

?

help!!
Jim Horn

> i need a range of dates in the report,
Please give us a before-and-after data mockup of what you're trying to pull off here, as I sense that the scope of the question has changed, and there's obviously a language barrier.

i want all the records of my database between a range of dates, in 2000 do it grate, but in 2014 fail

 (datetime,estimado)>= '02/08/2014' (datetime,estimado) <= '02/09/2015'

this is the original query

insert into chequetmp select * from nopagados where convert (datetime,estimado)>= '02/08/2014' and convert(datetime,estimado) <= '02/09/2015'

If the table didn't change its types, the only way the results are different is because the locale is different, leading to a different datetime interpretation of your literals '02/08/2014' and '02/09/2015' as "8th of February 2014" and "9th of February 2015'.
