Convert Gregorian date to Julian date and use dateadd

I have a date field that is a decimal data type which I converted to datetime. When I use dateadd with the converted data type in SSMS 2005 it works but when I put this in SSRS 2008 I get the following error.

dateadd(dd, cast(right(lm.jha_dw_loaddate ,3) as varchar(3)) -1,
                   cast(left(lm.jha_dw_loaddate, 4) as datetime)) = @BeginDate + 7

Error Message: Conversion failed when converting the nvarchar value '4/10/2012 12:00:00 AM' to data type int

This works fine in SSRS 2008.

dateadd(dd, cast(right(lm.jha_dw_loaddate ,3) as varchar(3))-1,  
                   cast(left(lm.jha_dw_loaddate, 4) as datetime)) = @BeginDate

Any suggestions?

Your 2 queries are different. Your 2005 script has + 7.

SSMS vs SSRS ? Where are you putting this in SSRS?

I copied the wrong query, both should be the first one. Where I'm having the problem is when I try to add days (+7). The query works fine in SSRS when I don't try to add days.

Thanks.

Instead of @BeginDate + 7, try DATEADD(dd,7,@BeginDate)

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
