These are my tables
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[dailyRate](
[SYMBOL] [varchar](50) NULL,
[SERIES] [varchar](50) NULL,
[OPENPRICE] [varchar](50) NULL,
[HIGHPRICE] [varchar](50) NULL,
[LOWPRICE] [varchar](50) NULL,
[CLOSEPRICE] [varchar](50) NULL,
[LASTPRICE] [varchar](50) NULL,
[PREVCLOSE] [varchar](50) NULL,
[TOTTRDQTY] [varchar](50) NULL,
[TOTTRDVAL] [varchar](50) NULL,
[TIMESTAMPDAY] [varchar](50) NULL,
[TOTALTRADES] [varchar](50) NULL,
[ISIN] [varchar](50) NULL
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[cmpDailyRate](
[ID] [bigint] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
[SYMBOL] [varchar](50) NULL,
[SERIES] [varchar](50) NULL,
[OPENPRICE] [decimal](18, 4) NULL,
[HIGHPRICE] [decimal](18, 4) NULL,
[LOWPRICE] [decimal](18, 4) NULL,
[CLOSEPRICE] [decimal](18, 4) NULL,
[LASTPRICE] [decimal](18, 4) NULL,
[PREVCLOSE] [decimal](18, 4) NULL,
[TOTTRDQTY] [bigint] NULL,
[TOTTRDVAL] [decimal](18, 4) NULL,
[TIMESTAMPDAY] [smalldatetime] NULL,
[ISIN] [varchar](50) NULL,
[M_Avg] [decimal](18, 4) NULL

this is my insert query to fetch data from table to another with casting

INSERT into [Stock].[dbo].[cmpDailyRate]
convert(date, [TIMESTAMPDAY], 105),convert(bigint,[TOTALTRADES]),[ISIN],null
FROM [Stock].[dbo].[DailyRate]

above query run perfectly in sql2005
but giving error in sql2008(above query run also in sql2008 when installed ,error arise in last few days )
error :Error cannot convert varchar to float
what to do?

Error arise due to some invalid data .

what value does Str([OPENPRICE],18,4) passes?

OPENPRICE column has float value. and this function "Str([OPENPRICE],18,4)" gives result in character format. but i insert the result in decimal(18,4) data type column. and it work.
it need to be cast.but without casting it works.
