Set the dateformat to use for queries in an ADO connection

fc_curling asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-23
In Delphi the datetostring defaults to 'dd/mm/yyy'
The smalldatetime format on my sql server is 'yyyy/mm/dd hh:nn:ss'

My problem is that I can not be sure on the dateformat on the sqlserver if the application is run against a different server in a different country.

Can I somehow change the default dateformat on the adoconnection to use a specfic format so that I'm able to use a fixed formatdatetime format in my query ?
