Hi,
I am trying to insert some values in a database.I'm using prepared statements and this is my query


startDate and returnDate are of the format "YYYYMMDD"

This throws this error : Syntax error converting datetime from character string.

but when i change the query to

pstmt.setString(4,"20060905") this works fine.

I'm using SQL Server 2000.
Can anyone tell me how this can be fixed?

Thanks
Bitz

  • Convert Your String date to java.util.Date or Java.sql.Date
  • Set them as date in preparedStaement, NOT as String
