Geography data type error

Geography data type error

Geography data type error

I have a field in a table with the geography data type.

I can write to the field using a lat & long reference which gives me a value of: 0xE6100000010CF4F8BD5D7F063CC059349D9D0C2A6340

When I try to extract the lat out of that field using


, I receive the error:


Could not find property or field 'long' for type 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Types.SqlGeography' in assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Types'. 

I thought this should work?

RE: Geography data type error

Have you tried:


Select	GEOLOCATION.Longitude
From	YourTable 

Sample from here

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

RE: Geography data type error

Yeah tried that. still doesn't work.

RE: Geography data type error

This worked though


SELECT geolocation.Lat as Lat, geolocation.Long as Lon from INVESTOR.PROPERTIES 

I read something about case sensitivity regarding spatial data
