I am using Ms Access database, I have a query which gets the month and year of the date. to do so I use
Format([Date],"mm") AS [Month], Format([Date],"yyyy") AS [Year]
where date is the date in the table. Now I want to do the same in Sql server 2000 view where it does not accept the format function in the sql view.
please help me and solve my problem

thanks

SQL Server has Built-in functions to retrieve the Month and Year (and Day for that matter)value( as Numbers) of a Date field, though it is NOT a good idea to name fields (even as Aliases) as Year, Month, Day or Date - all of which are generally reserved words.

You can also use T-SQL's CONVERT function to convert a datetime field to several different predefined formats.  The below MSDN link documents many of these formats:
