SDAC does not fully support SQL 2008 datetime2

Post by Vladimir » Thu 03 Dec 2009 01:26

The SDAC Delphi DateTime is only accurate to a millisecond.
If a new datetime2(7) column is a part of a key, a record can't be deleted since the DateTime SDAC sends to SQL isn't accurate enough

Here is SDAC trying to delete my Notes record

exec sp_executesql N'DELETE FROM dbo.PurchaseOrderLineNotes
pohID = @P1 AND polLineNo = @P2 AND polntID = @P3 AND polnCreatedOn = @P4',N'@P1 int,
@P2 int,@P3 smallint,@P4 datetime2(7)',124,2,2,'2009-12-02 18:00:15.7430000'

And here is the CreatedOn from then record from the Management studio

2009-12-02 18:00:15.7430449

Please support SDAC being fully compliant with datetime2 data type.

This behaviour is connected with the fact that Delphi TDateTime field keeps time only to millisecond, and we can't influence this behaviour.

So really there's no simple solution other than to explicitly state it's a datetime field or use cast/convert
