Formatting For A Birth Date Field??

Sep 16, 2006

Hello, I'm new to SQL Server, working for a non-profit computerizing a
lot of its data.

I imported a table of people's names, birth dates, etc. into SS2005
from Access, and the birth_date was imported as an Access date/time
field, giving it the datetime datatype in SQL.

The column values look like:

10/14/1964 12:00:00 AM

Where and how do I learn to specify that all fields like this should be
in ISO format of yyyy-mm-dd??

Do I have to create a new column and put all the dates into it??
Should I just convert the data in queries/views??
Use a constraint to format the data??
I can redo the Access table if necessary, it is only 300-some rows.

I tried BOL but it was not helpful...

The end users will likely enter mm/dd/yy or mm/dd/yyyy and it will have
to be stored properly in the database table as column/field

Thank you, Tom

Reporting Services :: Formatting A Date Field To Just Show Date Not Minutes?

Jul 6, 2015

A date field in a report returns the date value as:

2015-07-01 13:30:27.000

Is there any way I can script this to appear as:

01 July 2015 (or 01-07-2015 or 01/07/2015)  - basically to cut out the hours, minutes and seconds?

The best I have managed is: CONVERT (varchar(17),DATE,113) AS Date1 but this still leaves me with:

01 July 2015 13:30

Date Of Birth Conversion

Apr 18, 2000

Can someone help please?
I'm using SQL Server 7 and trying to update a table containing over 250,000 records. I have a character(8) (CHARDOB) field representing dates of birth in the form YYYYMMDD and would like to update my datetime field (DOB) using a simple update command like:-

5, 2) + '/' + LEFT(CHARDOB, 4)

but get the message:-

Server: Msg 242, Level 16, State 3, Line 1
The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range datetime value.
The statement has been terminated.

The strange thing is that this works on a small dataset but crashes and burns on larger ones. I have tried different CAST and CONVERT options to transform the data into the correct format. I have tried a stored procedure, DTS transformations and execute SQL task in my DTS package without success.

Any help will be appreciated.

Trigger To Calculate Age From Date Of Birth

Dec 12, 2003

Here's the problem. I want to insert age in years to a table of children, using a MS SQL trigger to calculate age from Date of Birth (DOB). DOB format is mm/dd/yyyy. The DOB input comes from an ASP Insert statement. I've tried to use DateDiff and a user-defined function to calculate age without any success. Also the trigger needs to account for children of less than 1 year old, could be a 0. Age is integer in the children table. Any help is greatly appreciated. The sooner the better. Even a kick start is better than nothing.

Field Formatting

Apr 24, 2008


Is there a way to format a field in a table with a datetime data type to show just the date?
ie. 24/04/2008 17:25:00 would just become 24/04/2008.

Even showing 24/04/2008 00:00:00 would be helpful.

Formatting A Field On SQL Server

Sep 11, 2007

Hello again,

I have a huge question haha. I just simply want to make a number display differently before I insert it into the table. for instance in Access, you can simply say FORMAT(c,format) ex: FORMAT(@CHARMINS, 00000) and it should work that way.

How would I accomplish this in SQL server? Right now I have the number 30 displaying as 30.00 in the variable it is set to.... I want it to be shown as 00030.... and any other number that is like 30.00, I want it shown the same way. Like 100.00 would be 00100. Thank you.

Partial Field Formatting

Feb 8, 2008

Is it possible to format just part of a field? I've got a report that return a collection of users based on some search criteria. Bascially, you enter a string and the report returns all users with a user name or display name simialr to your search string. I wanted to highlight the part of the name that matches the search string.

For instance, if you search for 'nny'

You might see a result of 'Johnny User'

Date Formatting

Feb 13, 2007

My problem is with the paramater format date.

My code and data in SQL are showing the date correctly as dd/mm/yyyy.

When I run report in SSRS a couple of columns show the date mm/dd/yyyy.

The format option in all cells are set to 'd'. There is no difference between the properties on these cells.

The dates themselves seem to go wrong on the date "31/12/4000" and returns them as "12/31/4000".

Any help wqould be appreciated

Helo All -
I would greatly appreciate some help formatting the values for my sproc.
I need to call a sproc and pass it the values StartTime and EndTime from a web form.  The web form uses 3 DDLs for the Start Hour, Start Minute and Start AM/PM as well as 3 DDLs for the End Hour, End Minute and End AM/PM.

Help!! Date Formatting Nightmare!

Dec 5, 2005

I converted an Access Database to SQL Express. The dates were converted to datetime
I'm using VWD 2005
Here is the source of my date and the query.
sqlDate = (DateTime.Now.AddDays(-7))
sqlTxt = "SELECT Service_Orders.SStore_Assigned_Number, Store_Info.Store_Other, Service_Orders.PO_Number, Service_Orders.SWorkType, Service_Orders.Service_Order_Number, Service_Orders.SDate_Entered, Service_Orders.SContact, Service_Orders.SClosed FROM Service_Orders INNER JOIN Store_Info ON Service_Orders.Store_ID = Store_Info.Store_ID WHERE (Service_Orders.SDate_Entered >= CONVERT(DATETIME, '" + sqlDate + "', 101)) ORDER BY Service_Orders.SDate_Entered DESC"
This retrurns 0 records.
sqlDate = 11/28/2005 12:23:27 AM from the function above.
The query will return records with :
sqlDate = "2005-11-01 21:56:20"
I tried changing the CONVERT(DATETIME, '" + sqlDate + "', 1XX from 100 to 120 with no luck
I know this must be an easy fix, but it is beyond me.
I need to know how to
1. convert my date to the dateformat from "11/28/2005 12:23:27 AM" to "2005-11-01 21:56:20"
2. find out how to use the CONVERT(DATETIME, '" + sqlDate + "', 1XX properly
Thanks for any help in advance!

Date Formatting Problems

Jan 30, 2006


I have around 1000 records each with two dates in a database in MSDE on
my PC.  I need to move the data to an on line SQL server and have
tried to use Microsoft Web Data Administrator to do this.  I can
export the data from the MSDE to an SQL file but it will not import
because the date format in the SQL file is "dd,mm,yyyy".

If I export from either the MSDE or the SQL server both produce files
with date in the format "dd,mm,yy" and yet I cannot import either!?!

It is impractical to change all the dates by hand.  I am on a
budget and do not have access to anything other than free software.

Can anyone advise me of the best way forward.

Thanks in anticipation.
