Default Syntax error converting datetime from character st

Hi,

I m trying to copy data from source table to destination table . The source table columns r of varchar type while the destination columns r either date or int . I have casted the columns into proper data type while selecting it from the source table and try inserting into destination table but i m getting the following errror.

"Syntax error converting datetime from character string."

I already checked for nulls but the problem seems to be improper data format coz i saw some of the data in the source table conatin spaces & thats y cast might be failing..



Can someone help me out pls in tackling the above issue.....

I appreciate it in advance.

Hey Amit Thanx for ur reply.

Well do someone has some script or proc which while inserting data from source table to destination table do proper format check i mean to say for example a field with varchar is dumped into date field but the varchar field has some invalid date then in that case it ignore the entire row while dumping into destination table and carry on the execution rather than stopping at that point
