The database is in the collation Finnish_Swedish_CI_AS and I have table with a datetime column. We have an application that u are able to change language in. This change the culture information inside the application. Inside the application we are using strongly typed datasets. The dataset has the column set to the System.DateTime and UnspecifiedLocal. Running in Swedish mode that dataset read the date correctly and updates correct. But when switching to another language the application thinks that this #4/28/2009 10:36:28 AM# is char when trying to update. With a Adapter.Update(table). The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range datetime value. The statement has been terminated.
