I tried Google and trying to solve this error but of no use. the error still persists.

When tried to execute this line

cmd.CommandText = string.Format("[dbo].[search_PIValue] {0},'{1}'", kpi,monthyear);

I got this error:

Error converting data type nvarchar to date.

I don't know what to change and where to make a change since i'm a newbie programmer.
Please help me.

This is my stored procedure:
ALTER proc [dbo].[search_PIValue]
@KPI int,
@monthyear DATE 
 from PItable p
 inner join
 PITrantbl pt
 p.ObjectID = pt.PID
 where p.KPIid=@KPI and pt.Month=MONTH(@monthyear)

What is the value of "monthyear" parameter that you are passing?

{14/05/2012 12:00:00 AM}

This is the value thats being passed @Patel_vijay

Try to format your "monthyear" value in yyyy-MM-dd format.
It will work

Ex. MONTH('2012-05-14 12:00:00)

I'm confused Where to make this change!?

in c# code or in SQL query?

1 solution

Assuming that monthyear is a DateTime (and it looks like it is from your example) pass it through as a Parameter instead of converting it at all:
cmd.CommandText = string.Format("[dbo].[search_PIValue] {0},@MY", kpi);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@MY", monthyear);
SQL should then sort it all out itself.
