Hi, I keep getting an error when I run my code. Here’s the error “The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range datetime value. The statement has been terminated”. It points to this part of my code… Code: cmd.ExecuteNonQuery() Here’s my code… Code: Private Sub TestDate() Dim DateClosedString As String = "Closed" Dim cnn As Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection Dim cmd As Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand Dim TodayTest As Date = Today Dim strSQL2 As String strSQL2 = "Update TestTBL SET DateStatus = '" & DateClosedString & "' WHERE EndDate >= '" & Today & "'" Dim conn As String conn = "Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=""|DataDirectory|\aspnetdb.mdf"";Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True" cnn = New Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(conn) cmd = New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand(strSQL2, cnn) cnn.Open() cmd.ExecuteNonQuery() cnn.Close() End Sub What I want it to do is check my TestTBL and if any EndDates are greater or equal to todays date, write closed to the DateStatus field. The dates are saved to the database as DateTime. This is copy and passed from an enddate field in my database “22/05/2007 00:00:00”. I’m not really need the time part but I cant find any other way. Can anyone help? I’ve been pulling my hair out over this one for days.
