Your application is more likely to be portable and break less if you use the end-user application for date formatting. DATEADD(D, 0, DATEDIFF(D, 0, GETDATE())), the reason why i would choose this method over convert is because of my size of table which is almost like 2 millions rows and somehow my datetime column is a part of primary key.I know this doesn’t answer your question, but as a developer I’ve had to clean up messes by past devs who used SQL for date formatting, it will work, but there are much better ways. Also to note is, if my concern is only to get the date part then its better to use above mentioned method than using convert, as convert will change the datatype of column on the fly to string and its an overhead for the engine to do this step. My XML have tag like :2009-02-28T+SP is not accepting the date I pass above to datetime field of SQL server 2005you plz. I tried forselect cast(2009-02-28T+′ as xml).value(‘xs:date Time(.)’, ‘DATETIME’)but it is giving NULL Value. [email protected], You need to use styles with convert.

Please is helpful however, I bumped into problems when I used convert instead of dateadd function to extract the datepart. Well, but now I am fasing new problem for this Date Time only of XML…I have two tags in my XML datatype string which are 2009-01-01T+ 2009-12-31T+Actualy these dates are 01/01/2009 and 31/12/2009 respectively But In Open XML when I convert these dates it gives me different OUTPUT(Here with I am showing you in select )select cast(‘2009-01-01T+’ as xml).value(‘xs:date Time(.)’,’DATETIME’) as Start Date,cast(‘2009-12-31T+’ as xml).value(‘xs:date Time(.)’,’DATETIME’) as End Date OUTPUT is :2008-12-31 .000 2009-12-30 .000respectively .. Regards Hello Sir, I have one date problem regarding importing XML Date to sql Server 2005. I have a problem in comparing 2 date fields one has the time field as (2009-01-16 .690) and the other (2008-08-07 .000). I tried coverting them to varchar (101) and using the I have a problem with dates that are entered in MS Access but are out-of-range like 01/02/830.
when you use this column to search for a specific date, the converted datetime column will yield incorrect results since it still has the timepart in it only not visible. To String(); //i wanna show here only date bool bt; bool. Can u please help me with a query that can retrieve such dates for correction before I can import the data to SQL Server 2008.
in cases like this, it is advisable to use the dateadd function instead as you will be sure that it will set the time part to .000 hence you will be able to use this to look for a specific date only. DECLARE @ret_string varchar (255) DECLARE @year as varchar(10) DECLARE @Month as varchar(10) DECLARE @Day as varchar(10)set @year = cast(year(getdate()) as varchar) set @Month = cast(month(getdate()) as varchar) set @Day = cast(Day(getdate()) as varchar)EXEC xp_sprintf @ret_string OUTPUT, ‘%s-%s-%s’, @year, @Month, @Day PRINT @ret_string Result will be like this 2008-10-26i had use the following function to get only the date part from datetime data @data=CONVERT(varchar(8), @feedbackdate, 112)it did work fine and returned the date part as 20081005but while again using the procedure to insert the values i.e.

I use a Calendar to collect the From Date and another to collect the To Date and put this into a textbox (tb From Date, tb To Date) (I can’t collect directly from a Calendar nor a label, just a textbox. Based on this coulmn value i need to get other column value but datetime value would be in ‘9/28/2009′ format. 10/1/2007 Can anybody please help me regarding this? FWIW…Many people prefer the DATEADD method rather than the CONVERT method because they are trying to compare two dates rather than output a date…If you use the CONVER method, once you get the string with just the date in it, you have to convert it back to a datetime to do any comparisons with it other than =, and two converts is more expensive than a couple of system function calls in a non-negligible way…I developed the solution for date only from ‘getdate()’ function. Because I does not required to change the data type in the database or not required to write down different function for each time or not required to execute the same function for so many times. is there any way to only store time, not date in sql server database?
