Convert DateTime To A DateTime With Milliseconds Format


I am trying to access a date column up to millisecond precession. So I cast date to as follows:

Code BlockCONVERT(varchar(23),CREATE_DATE,121)

I get millisecond part as a result of query but it€™s €œ000€?.

When I try to test the format by using getDate instead of DateTime column I get right milliseconds.

CONVERT(varchar(23),GetDate(),121) --Gives right milliseconds in return

UTC Datetime Not Available In Design Mode


When creating a table in design mode, there is no option to set the field as UTC datetime.

Is the logical work around to issue an ALTER TABLE statement and how would this look? That is, how would the ALTER statement look to include constraints:

ALTER TABLE [dbo].[My_Table](

[Item_ID] [smallint] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,

[Started] [datetime] NOT NULL CONSTRAINT [DF_CL_Items_Started] DEFAULT (GETUTCDATE()),

[Ended] [datetime] NULL CONSTRAINT [DF_CL_Items_Ended] DEFAULT (null),



[Item_ID] ASC

Changing The Design From Char To Datetime

I accidently put char instead of datetime in the Sql Server DateCreated
dataType. Is there any way that now I can change. I guess even if I
change I cannot get the time and date in a format that I want since
they are in Char datatype.

DateTime Format -

I have installed the trial version of windows server 2003 on the second hard drive on my computer. I set up IIS and ran my website on it but the problem is when I do something on the site, which has a sql insert statement regarding it says, "conversion failed when converting datetime from character string"
I think it's to do with the clock on server 2003, the format is like: 11/07/2007 2:39:59 a.m. 
I think it should be in format AM and not a.m.
 Any ideas on how to change the time format on a computer?
 Or should I just change the Columns in my table to a Nvarcher value or something?

DateTime Format

Hello all,
I'm trying to write a query against an exisiting table that i can't modify and i'm running into a bit of a problem. The table stores timestamps as a char field instead of a datetime.
So, i've had to use the CONVERT function to change it to a datetime during my query. A sample is below:
SELECT convert(datetime, logged, 120) FROM AP200310
This works, except i want to include the option of querying a single day. Since the data that is returned is in this format:
12/12/2006 6:54:15 PM
The following sql statement doesn't work:SELECT convert(datetime, logged, 120) FROM AP200310 WHERE logged = '12/12/2006'
Thanks in advance for any help.

DateTime Format

Hi,I'm new to SQL Server (Express) and I wonder if there is a way that I can format a date's appearance in the database, that is, the format of the datetime column.
When I view a date in VWD Express, it's in my country's format (2006-11-24 for example) but when I try to insert a date using the same format using a web form, the inserted date in the database becomes 1905-06-something. This happens regardless of whether I'm inserting a string or if the string has been converted to a date via CDate.
So, is there a way I can set the database's date format? And why is it wrong anyway? It's bugging me as the original (Swedish) date is already in the ISO format that SQL Server seems to use (such as yyyy-mm-dd), and I'm using localhost with Windows set to Swedish, IE 6 set to Swedish, and even web.config's UICulture and Culture to Swedish as well.
Of course, I can rearrange the order of the date's numbers to get proper values in the db, but it seems as an unnecessary step and I can't figure out what format to use anyway.
All help is very welcome.

Datetime Format


I have some code in a function in C# like this:

DateTime datetime = DateTime.Now;

SqlCommand CommandEvent = new SqlCommand("spAddNewEvents", Connection);
CommandEvent.Transaction = Trans;
CommandEvent.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

*I try First : CommandEvent.Parameters.Add("@date", datetime);
*I try Secound: CommandEvent.Parameters.Add("@date", SqlDbType.DateTime,
8).Value = datetime;

and have some storeprocedure with this code

@guid uniqueidentifier,
@language char (2),
@date as datetime,
@eventId as varchar (50),
@userid as varchar (20)
execute('insert into tblEvents'+@language+'( guid, [date], [id], userid)


The problem is when I try to insert a new event. The event insert are fine,
but the datetime's secound in tblEvents always is 00, and I check the
datetime variable to insert and have secound different that 00.

the table definition is Data Type: datetime and Length: 8, how must be?

I run Profiler and a I get this:

exec spAddEvents @Guid = 'C879D062-C268-4A3E-8D58-1937B7612EC2', @language = N'ES', @date = 'May 6 2004 11:29:58:140PM', @eventId = 6, @userid = N'anibal'

Best regards.

Datetime Format, Can This Be Done

Hi There,

I'm in a learning phase of SQL server 7. I need your help for the following:

I am selecting from a dropdown list Month ('January, february,..... but not as '01', '02'..) and Year (2000, 2001.....), when they are selected a table is displayed for next 12 months starting from the selected month (like say, if April and 2002 was selected, my other table will show Apr. 02 - Mar. 03 ), and data is inserted into it manually.
My question is How to insert this date into the sql I just need the month and the year.....and in sql server the date datatype is "datetime", also i have only one column for this month and year....should i change my tables and make different columns for Month and Year. Can only Month (Januray, february.....) and Year (2000, 2001...) be inserted.

Datetime Format Issue

Hi, I have a SQL Express 2005 db, with the following format for the datetime vales: dd/mm/yyyy, and if the day or the month has only one digit, it'll be completed with a zero(ie 09/03/2007). The problem is that I sent a backup(.bak file) of it to other people, but they see the date as mm/dd/yyyy and the dates are not completed with zeroes(ie 5/5/2007). How can we both have the same format? Any ideas? Thanks a lot.

Datetime Format Within 7.0 TablesL ?

I have SQL Server 7.0 db I converted from Access 95. The access db had a format of mm/dd/yyyy on all the datetime
fields, when viewing all records within SQL 7.0 the datetime fields appear as mm/dd/yy(06/01/99) but if I query the
datetime column from the query analyzer a value of 1999-06-01 is returned. It's making a project lead nervous thinking
that the table isn't Y2K compliant. Is there a fomat function within the table on how to display datetime values?
Basically is SQL Server truncating the date when I return all the rows or is there something else going on?
p.s. the datetime field has a length of 8

Datetime Format (insert From Vb6)

I'm still having a problem inserting date fields into sql server.

I don't understand how it accepts datetime.

I have all of my date columns defined with datetime format and all of the dates are coming out as the default of: 01/01/1900.

I tried to insert the data as string and sql server doesn't understand that format.
Here's some of the code:

We're going from flat VSAM files to an sql server database.
This is one huge sql insert statement with about 75 fields being loaded into a table so I'll only post one the date fields.
Here's where I call the String functions from:

First, I have to uncomp the field from binary to String:

ls_sdate = Right$(CompToStr(bufMast.Name_Chg_Date), 8)

And then I send this string to my Convert_Date function:

lsDet1 = Trim$(lsDet1) & Convert_Date(ls_sdate) & ","

(lsDet1 is a concatenated String of the SQL Values to be inserted)

And Here are the two functions:
The date field is coming in like: 1991112 where if the first character is a 1, the year is 1900 and if the first character is a 0, the year is 2000.
I get correct fields in my message box like 1996/12/31 but then I don't know what sql server does to it in datetime format.
When I check the database table it looks like: 01/12/1900

Maybe there is something wrong with my Convert_Date function;

Datetime Field Format


I have a table with datetime field in SQL server 7.0
I have inserted values into datetime field
for eg: '10/10/99'
'10/10/99 10:30 AM'
'11/10/99 11:50 PM'
When I view this table from enterprise manager, values are shown exactly
in the same format I have entered.
But, When I run the query from Query Analyzer, It always shows values in the following format '1999-10-10 00:00:00.000'

Is there a way that I can see the values in the same format I have entered.

Help !!!
