if it is a datetime column, you can't remove the time part, what you can do is, can update those min/secs to zero

update urTable
SET urDateColumn = CONVERT(VARCHAR,urdateColumn,112)

in case you dont want to show the time portions, you can use the above query

To remove the time component from a datetime column:

update YourTable
set YourDate = convert(datetime,convert(varchar(10),YourDate,101),101)
