support for TRY_CONVERT or TRY_CAST functions
Azure SQL DW does not support tryconvert or trycast function in T-SQL. This is must needed function to validate the conversion of data types. We have custom date conversion function which uses try_convert to convert different date formats and getting on standard date format out. Please include this feature Azure SQL DW.
These two functions are now supported by Azure SQL DW.
It would be great if we could get this functionality... it shouldn't take 2 years to get developed.
Any update about this ?
