Formview gives Error converting data type nvarchar to numeric error when comma is in the input

I have a formview that collects various data including money and decimal data. I had a problem where the $ was casuing the "Error converting data type nvarchar to numeric" error and think I corrected it by changing the format to {0:C} for the field in the data bindings.

I am still having an issue with commas in the data in a decimal field. The field in the database is decimal (14,9) and the format in the textbox in the formview is {0:n}. The data being input is something like 123,456.0. This gives the Error converting data type nvarchar to numeric error. If you remove the comma, 123456.00, no error is received.

How do I fix this?

Thanks Ken

 Consider the following TSQL fragment
SET @FRED = '123,456.0'
This works because the comma is stripped prior to conversion. So change SELECT CONVERT(DECIMAL(8,2), FRED) .....
CONVERT(DECIMAL(8,2), REPLACE(FRED, ',','')) .......
where FRED is the column to display.

Not sure it was SQL that was blowing up. But I figured out what I had done before to get the money fields working. In the updateparamaters and the InsertParameters section, it did not have a type param for the text box field. I added the Type=decimal and it works correctly now.


<asp:Parameter Name="CompTypeId" Type="Int32" />

<asp:Parameter Name="CompName" Type="String" />

<asp:Parameter Name="Location" Type="String" />

<asp:Parameter Name="LegalDesc" Type="String" />

<asp:Parameter Name="TaxID" Type="String" />

<asp:Parameter Name="Grantor" Type="String" />

<asp:Parameter Name="Grantee" Type="String" />

<asp:Parameter Name="SaleDate" Type="DateTime" />

<asp:Parameter Name="SalePrice" />

<asp:Parameter Name="ListPrice" />

<asp:Parameter Name="LandSize" Type=Decimal />

<asp:Parameter Name="LandSizeUnitId" />

<asp:Parameter Name="ImproveSize" Type=decimal />

Thanks for the help.

SQL Server Error: "Arithmetic overflow error converting numeric to data type numeric"
I'm still quite new to SQL, and so I may be missing something quite obvious. Apologies in advance if that's the case. I've included my query at the bottom of the message as it is quite long; my problem is that I get "Arithmetic overflow error converting numeric to data type numeric" when the first parameter to my COALESCE calls is not NULL. That is, the COALESCEs and the query work as I expect when SUM(cust_vw_actual.Actual) is NULL (they return 0.00), but if it isn't I get the error.
