Hi

thanks in advance

Regards,



sqlcmd = "Create table #Eft_Transfer( " & vbCrLf _
& " EFT_No varchar(20), null , " & vbCrLf _
& " Effective_Date datetime , " & vbCrLf _
& " Service_Code Varchar(10) , " & vbCrLf _
& " Reference_Number Varchar(30)) " & vbCrLf

With grdCreateGrid
For lngRowCount = 1 To .MaxRows
.GetText(ConstgrdCEftNum, lngRowCount, varValue)
strEftNo = varValue
.GetText(constgrdCEffectiveDte, lngRowCount, varValue)
strDate = varValue
.GetText(constgrdCServiceCodeCode, lngRowCount, varValue)
strCode = varValue
.GetText(constgrdCRefNo, lngRowCount, varValue)
strReference = varValue

I assume the error is genereated in the following line (can you confirm?)
sqlcmd = sqlcmd & _
" insert into #Eft_Transfer values ('" & strEftNo & "','" & strDate & "','" & strCode & "','" & strReference & "')" & vbCrLf

The error indicates a string value is entered in a field (or variable) with the BIGINT datatype. It looks like one of your string-values doesn't contain a value that can be converted to a integer vale. To troubleshoot you can print the values just before inserting them. That way you can manually check if the values are correct.

Thanks for responding

Yes the error happens there

it does get the correct value
which is : strEFTNo = 'EFT0000000220'

But i wants this as numeric

and my
SELECT ISNUMERIC('EFT0000000220')
Results = 0 instead of 1

i tried casting and converting the strEft but i haven't come right

You cannot cast 'EFT0000000220' to bigint.
You can cast the numerical part, ie CAST(SUBSTRING('EFT0000000220',4,10) as bigint)


Far away is close at hand in the images of elsewhere.

What David is saying: the text part "EFT" can not be converted to a numeric value. Therefor you have to remove these characters from the value (using the SUBSTRING function). The remaing text represents a value tht can be converted to a numeric (BIGINT) value.

In this snippet:

sqlcmd = "Create table #Eft_Transfer( " & vbCrLf _
& " EFT_No varchar(20), null , " & vbCrLf _
& " Effective_Date datetime , " & vbCrLf _
& " Service_Code Varchar(10) , " & vbCrLf _
& " Reference_Number Varchar(30)) " & vbCrLf


you have an extra comma between the "EFT_No varchar(20)" and "null" and that might create unexpected results. That might just have been an error in posting though!

Yes otherwise the sql would fail in parsing not execution, notwithstanding, the code and sql is OK.
I suspect the error is in the procedure TransferFileCreate
