How do I use the CONVERT function to display a date as mm/dd/yyyy to the user when using datetime format? How do I 'trim' the time off?

I have a field CHARGEDATE that is a datetime format field that displays yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss.xxxx

How do I display this CHARGEDATE field to users as mm/dd/yyyy (?)

I need to incorporate the CONVERT function into an SQL statement that selects records and returns a result....

For example, this statement selects records:

SELECT [ID], [BILLNUMBER], [CHARGEDATE], [LNAME], [FNAME] FROM [TABLETracking] WHERE (([CHARGEDATE] IS NOT NULL) AND ([CHARGEDATE] >= @CHARGEDATE) AND ([CHARGEDATE] <= @CHARGEDATE2) AND ([7CAT] = @7CAT))

This statement converts to yyyy-mm-dd:

SELECT CONVERT(CHAR(10), CHARGEDATE, 120), ...
FROM myTable

How do I:
1.  Incorporate this convert statement into the select statement above so I can run them all at once?
2.  Get the converted date format to show as mm/dd/yyyy   ?

thanks.....

SELECT [ID], [BILLNUMBER], Convert( varchar(10), [CHARGEDATE], 101), [LNAME], [FNAME] FROM [TABLETracking] WHERE (([CHARGEDATE] IS NOT NULL) AND ([CHARGEDATE] >= @CHARGEDATE) AND ([CHARGEDATE] <= @CHARGEDATE2) AND ([7CAT] = @7CAT))
