Hello,
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?

Cheers

without concrete data as it is in the table and the variables, impossible to tell for sure

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

AND (  ( [REG] IS NULL AND @[REG] IS NULL )
       OR ( [REG] = @[REG] )
       )

Open in new window

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

Open in new window
