I thought it was understood that QotDs assume default SQL Server installation settings - if we veered off into region-specific settings, QotDs would have to have a dozen lines of code before you would get to the gist of the question.

Nice question to end the year with. I have had to monkey around with dates this way before so it seemed quite familiar to me!

Nice and Easy..!!

But Why This (B) option: "select bdateadd( ss, -1, datediff(yy, 0, @ThisDate) + 1 )" Is it a Typing Mistake, or what.? ;-)

My SQL Server instance was installed with default settings, and has British date format. Presumably the default settings vary according to region?

It was obvious that US format was assumed though, as there was no option for 'error' or 'none of the above'.

I'm disappointed that the question used the "datetime" data type. This has clearly been replaced by Date, Time and Datetime2. Obviously some of the established forum members can't move on.

I agree about moving forward with the newer temporal data types, but the old datetime has some nice features, like zero as an int will implicitly cast to 1900-01-01 00:00:00. The new ones don't do that. It's also frustrating that you can't do things like @MyDatetime2 = @MyDate + @MyTime; a glaring oversight if you ask me.

Sincerely,
Daniel
