Formatted output of date and time field in SELECT query of MSSQL table

We may have to collect date and time in different formats based on our requirement. While using a SELECT query we can specify our format by using CONVERT . Here is an examples of collecting different types of date and time.

only time part

rs.open " select convert(char(8),issue_dt,108) as tmp from dt " , conn

Inside the convert command char(8) will collect first 8 characters of time part so it will display like this


So a value of char(5) will only display hour and minutes ( no seconds ) and char(2) will display only hours

Only Date Part

rs.open " select convert(char(10),issue_dt,101) as tmp from dt " , conn

From above command we will get the output like this.


This is in US date format or mm/dd/yyy format

Here is the table for different style values can be sued along with convert to get required date and time formats.
0 or 100 Default mon dd yyyy hh:miAM (or PM)
101 U.S mm/dd/yyyy
102 ANSI yy.mm.dd
