Try this:

DECLARE @date SMALLDATETIME
DECLARE @julDate INT
SET @date = '2003-11-25'

SET @julDate = YEAR(@date) * 1000 +
      DATEDIFF(DAY, CAST(YEAR(@date) AS CHAR(4)) + '-01-01', @date) + 1

SELECT @julDate


Didn't know if you wanted if YYDDD or YYYYDDD, so used YYYY.

Hi jlindeman,

Declare @jd int
set @Jd = Year(@date) * 1000 + Datepart(dy,@date)
