Hi,

We are attending a central america site and when we run a script develop in our US site, it gives the error:

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.

Open in new window


So we think its the sql instance at thier end.

Question, how to convert our script to follow their region dates

SQL Server engine always stores the data as YYYYMMDD. The format is a client side so if you want to perform any operation internally convert always to YYYYMMDD no matter the country the server is.
