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 !!!!!!

Regards

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()))
