I can't seem to figure out what I am doing wrong. I have a table that contains a field in a smalldatetime format. I am trying to get sql to populate a text file. I want the smalldatetime field out of sql in the mm/dd/yy format. I am using a simple select statement. But all I get back is the standard sql date display in query analyzer. Here is the code and an example of the output.

Select
Convert(smalldatetime,Prod_Orig_Pub_Dt,1) AS Prod_Orig_Pub_Dt
FROM tbl_Product_FTP

This is what the query window displays....

To format a datetime field, you convert it to a VARCHAR, woth the format option in the convert function

Select
Convert(VARCHAR,Prod_Orig_Pub_Dt,1) AS Prod_Orig_Pub_Dt
FROM tbl_Product_FTP
