hi,

i am using sql server 2005 and not able to convert date in to smalldatetime.

query:
select convert(smalldatetime,getdate())

Error:

Msg 298, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The conversion from datetime data type to smalldatetime data type resulted in a smalldatetime overflow error.

why?

amit,


Your data in the DATETIME format may be out of the boundries of SMALLDATETIME.

DATETIME
January 1, 1753 through December 31, 9999


SMALLDATETIME
January 1, 1900 through June 6, 2079

Microsoft SQL Server Books online Topic: datetime and smalldate

Happy T-SQLing

Try this
SELECT CAST(GETDATE() AS SMALLDATETIME)

Hi Damon,

thanks to reply.

i think that there is not a data range problem , because
here i m using getdate() for date.


actually when i try following query
>> Select Getdate()
i got result.


but when i try to convert or cast getdate into smalldatetime , so i m facing problem.

>> select cast (getdate() as smalldatetime)

i got error.

i think that its a sqlserver 2005 installation problem. because when i try same query on another sqlserver 2005 ,its working.

select convert(smalldatetime,getdate())

select @@version
