"Invalid Char in Field" error

"Invalid Char in Field" error

Post by John Aldried » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I'm getting the same message every time I try to add or edit a date
        EDatabase Error:  Invalid Char in Field:  DOB   (for example).

I've tried using/not using edit masks, changing Regional settings in
Win95, etc., etc.   I can't imagine what is going on. Existing data is
fine, as long as I don't try to edit it  and post it or add a new

I would appreciate any thought anyone might have on this.
I'm using Delphi 3, Paradox 4.0 tables.



1. How to make a "decimal"-field to an "integer"-field

It is probably very easy, but I can't figure it out:
A field in a table on my MSSQL-server is at decimal-field, but in a view I
would like to use the field as an integer-field. I have tryed the SQL-code:

SELECT Int([Tabel1]![Felt2]) AS Udtryk1
FROM Tabel1;

but it dosn't work ! How do I do that ?

Thanks, Mads.
