Inline table function

P: 2
I have an inline table function and it takes tow parameters of type VARCHAR.
It functions when I hardcode to string within of call like this:
SELECT * FROM dbo.TestTable(a, b)

Here is definition of inline table function:

FUNCTION GetIPTimeRangeTable (@StartDate VARCHAR(10) = '', @EndDate VARCHAR(10) = '')
* FROM UserDataSetsAccess
WHERE 1 = 1
AND CreatedAT between @StartDate AND @EndDate

If call function like this:
SELECT * FROM GetIPTimeRangeViewTable('2008-7-1', '2008-7-11')
Every ting is OK but if I call function like this
SELECT * FROM GetIPTimeRangeViewTable('2008-7-1', CONVERT(CHAR(10), GETDATE(),121))
I get error:
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'CONVERT'.
Do you have any explanation for that! Tanks

I tried this and it worked

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Declare @A datetime
  2. select @A = CONVERT(CHAR(10), GETDATE(),121)
  3. SELECT * FROM dbo.GetIPTimeRangeTable('2000-08-06', @A)
It is true function is not accepted in a table function as a parameter.

Good Luck.

I am not a man.... :) But anyway I saw such behavior in other places so we have to work with what we have.
