UPDATE       Date
  SET                dateAvailable = @dateAvailable
  FROM            Date INNER JOIN
                           LessonDate ON Date.dateID = LessonDate.dateID

Solution 1

@LessonDateID is probably of varchar type.

Try using CAST or CONVERT and convert[^] this varchar to DateTime.

Try convert(datetime, @LessonDateID).
cutexxbaby at 31-Jan-12 6:40am
you mean the LessonDateID not the dateAvailable

Try both.
