    convert char to datetime datatype -Err msg

    Hi,
    I want to convert the datatype from char to datetime in th sql server table.
    But i am not able to convert .
    I am getting the following error.


    Msg 241, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
    Conversion failed when converting datetime from character string.

    But I need to convert the same....as i have done teh same long back.
    It would be of very great help, if you suggest me the solution for the same.

    Thanks in adv,
    Sowmya

    Without an example of the data I can't be sure if you need more or not but try:

    CAST('2009-04-21' AS DATETIME)

    Sounds like the character string is not really date. You can check which is not date and try to fix it then convert.

    select cdate, isdate(cdate)
    from yourtable

    anything with 0 in isdate column is invalid.
