This one will be easy, I'm sure. I'm a novice at Stored Procedures, and I'm wondering what function I can use to display a smalldatetime field (currently displaying as Dec 19, 2008 12:00AM) as a short date (12/19/2008)? I am on Sql Server...

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You could use the CONVERT function.

CONVERT ( data_type [ ( length ) ] , expression [ , style ] )

For example:

<pre>select convert(varchar,DateColumn,101) from table_x</pre>

Have a look at the <a href=”http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms187928.aspx”>CAST and CONVERT MSDN Page</a> to see the available styles table, and to get more help.
