YYYY-MM-DD Not Working In UK

The following query works fine against SQL Server 2000 here in the US:

SELECT * from TNEWSARTICLES where CreatedOn < '2003-04-25 14:22'

But in the UK, it returns this error:

80040e07: The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type
resulted in an out-of-range datetime value

If I change the format to YYYY-DD-MM, then it does work in the UK. But
I was under the impression that the YYYY-MM-DD format will work
regardless of regional date format settings. Is this wrong?

Any help is appreciated

Datepicker Transposes Dates From Dd/mm/yyyy To Mm/dd/yyyy
We are having problems with a new PC, we have installed oracle 10g client, Toad, and SQLServer2005 BITools
PC regional settings set to en-NZ( we need date format to be dd/mm/yyyy)
BITools/tools/options/international settings  language = Same as Microsoft Windows

Ran a simple query(against oracle db) using between with 2 date parameters one parameter is datatype string the other datetime. When previewing report string is entered 01/03/2008 and datetime param is entered by choosing from datepicker, when view report button is clicked the datetime param is transposed whereas the string param remains unchanged.

The problem seems to be the datepicker not picking up on regional date format.
This is a new PC with xp-sp3  and the above software installed.

Datetime Format Setting --&&> Mm-dd-yyyy Instead Of Dd-MM-yyyy In SQL Server 2005 / Expre(is It With Sql Server Login Language ??)
I€™m getting a datetime format problem(mm-dd-yyyy for dd-MM-yyyy), when I install SQL Server 2005 Express. {The exception is: The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range datetime value.}
My windows Regional and Language options €“ English (United Kingdom), Sort date format is dd-MM-yyyy.
When converting the date time in Sql server is using the mm-dd-yyyy format. But I€™m supplying the dd-mm-yyyy format date time.
I tried number of things none of them worked for me

1. Tried changing the default language and get the date time format
- exec sp_configure 'default language', 2057
-  did not work
EXEC sp_defaultlanguage 'my user name', 'British'
- did not work
2. Tried a registry hack by opening regedit, and get the following 3 language keys and change it to decimal 2057:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftMicrosoft SQL Server90ToolsClientSetupCurrentVersion]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftMicrosoft SQL Server90ToolsSetup
- did not work
3. Every thing in the Regional and Language options to UK and British with the date time format input language keyboard and every think else I could think of, which could link to US English or US date format  --------- Did not work
4.              even went into the extend of modifying the date format on a Windows machine for new users account by editing the HKEY_USERS registry key and creating a new user  - Did not work
(Ref: )
5.              Uninstall and reinstall SQL server express several time and did the steps 1 €“ 4 where applicable €“ did not work€¦.
If anyone has any idea of what I have to do to change the date time format in the SQL Server 2005 to use the dd-mm-yyyy format for dates....
Please help me or point me in the direction in which I have to look for an answer.
Thank you very much€¦.

Datetime To Dd/MM/yyyy For Inserting Into DB
hi there, i have a calendar that i put into a string ilke this
string str = Calendar1.SelectedDate.ToShortDateString();
the result is dd/mm/yyyy date which is great, but for inserting into my DB (MSSQL) it needs to be a datetime field, however when i convert it
Datetime dtDate = Convert.ToDateTime(str);
it takes my date and adds 00:00:00 onto the end and this is not what i want! i just want the dd/mm/yyy how do i do this, it has to be simple but i have been searching for hours and cant find anything, i am using ASP.NET 2 and C#

Smalldatetime Dd/mm/yyyy Formatting.
Hi there. Id like to use the smalldatetime type to store my dates in my SQL db.
However I do not want the time added on or anything and I want it in the dd/mm/yyyy format. I am getting the dates from my webpage as strings. how do I cast them into the above format when doing inserts and updates?
Is there a validation control available for dates in this format that I can use on my page?? I have many dates to validate and writing pages of code doesn't seem like the best solution. There must be an easier way...
Thanks, all you clever people...

DTS Screws Up Dd/mm/yyyy Dates
Hi Unlike the colonies, we still use dd/mm/yyyy format in the UK. A bit like VB string concatentation, DTS likes to treat dd/mm/yyyy dates as mm/dd/yyyy if dd <=12. I've run into this problem twice and been stumped both times. The first time I was setting up a new DTS and switched to BULK INSERT instead. This time I was editing an existing DTS but was able to alter the CSV export to store the dates as YYYY-MM-DD. I appreciate this is ISO whatisface and ODBC canoni-watsit and is the ideal format to transfer dates between RDBMS systems but... is there a third way? Can you tell SQL Server to expect to see the incoming dates in DD/MM/YYYY format and respond accordingly? I expected the answer to be in the DateTimeString transformation but I cannot get it to work - errors (haven't got the precise error to hand but can supply). Not urgent. Not even important. Just curious :) TIA chaps

To_date Funtion YYYY-DD-MM
Hi All:
We have a database date column in this format: 1/27/2008 1:20:00 AM and need a date or time function to cast local JVM time into the above format.

Suggest me the best options.
1. To go for a more comfortable date format in the database itself or
2. To have an appropriate conversion in my code.( I am not feeling good about the suffix AM/PM in the date column!)

 I need to dispaly 'mm/dd/yyyy' on a text box(aspx page) by default.
When the user enters the date(only numerics) in the text box it should take the date in that order.
eg.. if the user enters 01012008 on that text box, it should display 01/01/2008, adding '/' by itself.
      if the user enters 12312008 on that text box, it should display 12/31/2008, adding '/' by itself.
I am having tuff time,Can anyone, please provide the code for this solution.

DATETIME To Format Mm/dd/yyyy Hh:mm Am/pm

I have a column in a database set as a DATETIME datatype, when I select it, I want to return it as:

mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm am or pm.
How in the world can I do this? I looked at the function CONVERT() and it doesnt seem to have this format as a valid type. This is causing me to lose my hair, in MySQL it is just so much easier. .
At any rate, currently when I select the value without any convert() it returns as:
June 1 2007 12:23AM
Which is close, but I want it as:
06/01/2007 12:23AM

Need To Return Month/YYYY And Sort By It In Report
I have a report that is grouped by Month and Year.

So I need it to display:

Jan, 2007
Feb, 2007
Mar, 2007
Apr, 2007

AND it needs to be sorted with Jan as the first month and Dec as the last (as if it was 1-12 for months).

Now I can get it to display by taking the month name and concatenating it to the year, but then of course it won’t sort the way I want it to.

Any suggestions on this?

Perhaps I could/should return two values, the first being what I display on the report, and the second being what I sort on as a hidden field? So I could return 200701, 200702, 200703, and so on, to sort on that?

I've found a bit of an inconsistency between the way SQL Server treats dates and the way that SSIS treats them.

As stated here: the only totally unambiguous datettime string formats that SQL Server accepts are:
yyyymmdd hh:mi:ss


Given that then, its a bit annoying that, as stated here: those two formats are not accepted as valid datetime string formats in the SSIS pipeline (check the bottom data viewer in the screenshot at the above link).


I know that there is no strict requirement for SQL Server and SSIS to do the same thing as each other in situations like these but let's be honest - we all expect it to.


Any comments from MSFT?
Is it worth me raising this at Microsoft Connect?
