How Do I convert a Date to ddmmyyyy format in a view (with no delimiters)

Posted on 2003-11-21
Last Modified: 2010-05-18
I have tried using the convert and cast functions but of the available options i dont seem to be able to get ddmmyyyy without delimters. I am actually trying to export a view to a csv text file but the data transformation service doesnt work if the output is to a text file - it has to be to another column so I assume a table. I therefore want to inbuild the conversion into a view..........

Please Help !!!!!!

Hi duffster,

You could always use:

Select Replace(Convert(varchar,MyDateField,103),'/','') As MyNewDate

Try this, replace getdate() with your datetime column

select convert(char(2), datepart(dd, getdate())) +  convert(char(2), datepart(mm, getdate()))
   + convert(char(4), datepart(yy, getdate()))
