Unable to change default Date format in SQL Server Express

  • I have a problem with changing default Date format. I changed the language to British English on server. I added new user and set British English as default language for him, but date is still showing in format ymd.

    I want all dates in all databases to be in format dmy as default. I have tried this both on SQL Server Express 2014 edition and 2016 edition, but all dates are still in old English format (ymd).

  • You don't need to change the format of your dates in your SQL, change it in your presentation layer. SQL will always display dates in the format yyyy-MM-dd, as per msdn, it's not relevant to your language settings.


    Excuse my typos and sometimes awful grammar. My fingers work faster than my brain does.
