SSMA error message S2SS0046

CONVERT or CAST expression from binary to integer might cause a problem because of platform dependence

                  Comparing binary value with Timestamp column was different between Sybase and SQL server. The below code was working fine in Sybase but not in SQL server
Where timestamp = substring(CONVERT(varbinary (16), CONVERT(INT, @row_upd)), 5, 8)  where @row_upd was varchar(38 datatype)

To handle this the same code has been rewritten using Dummy value concatenation

0x00000000+substring (0x00000000 +CONVERT (varbinary(8), CONVERT(INT, @row_upd')),5,8)
