  • The error should be beacuse you may have worng data in your table.

    Please try the below:

    Create table T1(Dat nvarchar(19)) Insert into t1 Select '02-01-2013 12:01:13' Insert into t1 Select '22-01-2013 12:01:13' Select DAY(Dat),MONTH(Dat),YEAR(Dat) from T1 Where ISDATE(Dat) =1 Drop table T1

  • Create table #T(Dates nvarchar(19))
    Insert into #t Select '02-01-2013 12:01:13'
    Insert into #t Select '22-01-2013 12:01:13'
    select DAY(convert(date , dates,105)) as [Day], Month(convert(date , dates,105)) as [Month],
     year(convert(date , dates,105)) as [Year] from #t
    -- Or 
    Select DAY(Dates),MONTH(Dates),YEAR(Dates) from #t Where ISDATE(Dates) =1

  • Don't store date information in nvarchar(19) columns as you don't know what garbage may go into such column.


    Dear ISV: You’re Keeping Me Awake Nights with Your VARCHAR() Dates. Hopefully this article is strong enough to convince you to never use varchar for dates.

  • How exactly you're passing dates? Check SET DATEFORMAT command in BOL to set format either to DMY or MDY depending on your data.
