in tsql:

select convert(varchar(10), yourdatefield, 101)
from yourtablename

actually, 101 is mm/dd/yyyy,
1 is mm/dd/yy



select convert(varchar(10), getdate(),1)
select convert(varchar(10), getdate(),101)

But this would be, as chapmandew stated, a change in the SQL, not in the reporting services field.

I am pretty sure that is what the author asked for.  ;)

You're right.  I only saw the one in the title which was mm/dd/yy.  :)

I already have isNull(Issue.IDate, '') as IDate. If there is a way to use both IsNull and convert that would be great but I don'y know how.

Just use ISNULL(select convert(varchar(10), yourdatefield, 101),'') Like the experts said
if the date is null the convert will return a null and your statement will still fork

Even though there is a date in the field
select ISNULL(convert(varchar(10), yourdatefield, 101), '')
from yourtablename
returns a blank field
