Export view from sybase with diffrent date format using bcp command.

Hi.
I want to export a view from Sybase database using bcp command.
I have a timestamp field that I want to get in different format in the file.
In the view I am using the convert command to the needed format.
When I export the file it is not in the right format.
I am trying to change the format in the view but always get the same format in the bcp file.
The needed timestamp format is: 2003-02-27 17:22:12.122
The timestamp format I getting in the file is: Jul  5 2006  5:14:00:000PM

I am creating the view by using:

CREATE VIEW view7 AS select convert (datetime, mydatabase..myTable.DATETIME1, 121)As DATETIME1_NEW from
mydatabase..myTable

My bcp command is:
bcp mydatabase..view7 out view7.txt -S SERVER -U username -P password -c > C:/bcp/view7Error.txt

Thanks in advance.

You want to convert to char(26), not datetime. The formatting (the 121) has no meaning unless you are converting to char type.

When I am using char to create the view:

CREATE VIEW view7 AS select convert (char(26), mydatabase..myTable.DATETIME1, 121)As DATETIME1_NEW from
mydatabase..myTable

I am getting this error:

121 is not a valid style number when converting from DATETIME to a character string.

This might work...

 convert (char(10), d, 111)                    
+space(1)                                      
+convert (char( 8), d, 108)                    
+right (str (datepart (ms, d) * 0.001, 5, 3), 4)

if you don't mind / instead of - as the date part seperator. Otherwise I think you have to do more build-it-from-scratch formatting.
