I need to set the date format to based on the system locale and once I have captured the date, I will update it to a SQL Server Database with an unknown date format.

Hence I am thinking of doing the following:

commandvar="set dateformat ymd" + Chr(10) + "sp_updatesometable blar blar blar"
recordset.open commandvar, connectionobject

However, when I tried that, it gives error.

Please help!  Thanks you in advance.

Note:
The command work in query analysier
The recordset.open works when the commandvar contain only one SQL statement

Have You try :
Convert (datetime,@strval,dformat)

I prefer to use that one when deal with datetime.

for example:
@strval='14/04/2000' passed as varchar(10) to procedure and converted with 103 code.

not sure if this is valid.

I have tried running the two statement separately and it seems that that behaviour is as expect.  The date format is changed and the second statement can go through smoothly.

Isn't the date format equal on all SQL systems? (MM/DD/YYYY)

if you are using SQL Server, you can set the dateformat at syslanguage at master table.  Depending on the langid you are using, you can use different date format.

Actually the dateformat in the SQL Server should be dmy or ymd or blar blar blar. I don't remember seeing MM/DD/YYYY.

I have tried.  Observation.

1. Go statement wouldn't work
2. If the statement contain stored procedure, it wouldn't work also
3. It only work if everything is purely SQL statement but it is not necessary to cascade those statement together because you can execute the two statement together.

For the stored procedure, you need to add EXEC before it, and it WILL work
