Since leap seconds cannot be predicted by any algorithm, leap second data must come from some external source. When a century is not otherwise specified, values in the range [69,99] shall refer to years 1969 to 1999 inclusive, and values in the range [00,68] shall refer to years 2000 to 2068 inclusive.
is not the timezone that getdate() expects, an invalid input specification error shall result.
In addition, use the OPTION (RECOMPILE) query hint to force the query optimizer to recompile a query plan the next time the same query is executed.
The optimizer will then have accurate cardinality estimates for GETDATE() and will produce a more efficient query plan.
The standard developers encourage applications to remove declarations of getdate_err and instead incorporate the declaration by including The DESCRIPTION is updated to refer to "seconds since the Epoch" rather than "seconds since UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), January 1 1970" for consistency with other time functions.
By commenting, you are accepting the DISQUS terms of service.
Using SWITCHOFFSET with the function GETDATE() can cause the query to run slowly because the query optimizer is unable to obtain accurate cardinality estimates for the GETDATE value.
We recommend that you precompute the GETDATE value and then specify that value in the query as shown in the following example.
