select account_id, ***date- Todays date**** format YYYYMMDD with no spaces etc from cashmgmt_payment

also how can I make it so there are no 'header' or footer records so the output is something like:

123   20041224

no reference to rows selected or no header before JUST the result set.

the "header" is the output settings of the query tool...

the rest should be like this:
select account_id, convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 112) from cashmgmt_payment

select convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 112)
from tablename

as for the headers, view the results as text.  Go to tools, options...there is an option for not showing the headers.
