If at all possible formatting should be handled in the front end instead of sql. However if you MUST use sql you will need to use CONVERT for this type of thing.

declare @dt datetime
set @dt = '2013-03-01 18:40:24.000'

Just make sure you don't actually store formatted dates. It WILL come back to bite you in a major way!

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

Here's another option for formatting dates. I didn't create the logic behind this function other than to turn it into an iTVF rather than its original scalar form. I don't remember who wrote the original code but kudos to the anonymous developer.

A table of random dates to format (with a little assist from Jeff Moden):



IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#TempTable') IS NOT NULL
DROP TABLE #TempTable

CREATE TABLE #TempTable (
[ID] INT IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
[RandomDate] DATETIME NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (ID))

INSERT INTO #TempTable
SELECT RandomDate
FROM (
SELECT TOP 100
RandomDate = DATEADD(second,ABS(CHECKSUM(NEWID()))%36000, DATEADD(day,ABS(CHECKSUM(NEWID()))%3653+36524,'2000-01-01 00:00:01'))
FROM Master.dbo.SysColumns t1
)d




The function:



CREATE FUNCTION dbo.itvfFormatDateWithMask
(
@date AS DATETIME
,@format_string VARCHAR(50)
)
RETURNS TABLE
AS
RETURN
(

/*

SELECT * FROM dbo.itvfFormatDateWithMask(GETDATE(),'YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss.fff')
SELECT * FROM dbo.itvfFormatDateWithMask(GETDATE(),'MMMM Dx, YYYY hh:mmtt')

'YYYY' - full year with century
'YY' - year without century
'Y' - last digit of year
'MMMM' - month name
'MM' - month number with leading zero
'M' - month number without leading zero)
'DDDD' - day name
'DD' - day number with leading zero
'D' - day number without leading zero
'HH' - hour with leading zero (24 hr format)
'H' - hour without leading zero
'hh' - hour with leading zero (12 hr format)
'h' - hour without leading zero (12 hr format)
'mm' - minutes with leading zero
'm' - minutes without leading zero
'ss' - seconds with leading zero
's' - seconds without leading zero
'fff' - milliseconds with leading zeros
'f' - milliseconds without leading zeros
'tt' - AM or PM
't' - A or P
'x' - st, nd, or th

your simple way of doing this is :-
select cast(month(GETDATE()) as varchar(2))+'/'+cast(day(GETDATE()) as varchar(2))+'/'+cast(year(GETDATE()) as varchar(4))

Using CONVERT with correct format code is the simplest. This is a lot of work.
