I am writing a stored procedure with a query

IF NOT EXISTS( SELECT [Date],[Time],PickUpTime
                          FROM DIY WHERE( [Date] = CONVERT(NVARCHAR(20),@Date,112)  AND  [PickUpTime] = CONVERT(NVARCHAR(16),@PickUpTime,112) AND  [Time] = CONVERT(NVARCHAR(16),@Time,112))      

does not do it correctly on the time conversion any suggestions?

NULL on which side?

depending on the context, and the possible values and data type of the column/variable, I either use an AND/OR expression or a isnull expresion

       OR ( [REG] = @[REG] )

Open in new window

AND (  ISNULL( ( [REG] , 'X$X' ) = ISNULL( @[REG] , 'X$X' ) )

Open in new window
