Server instance default dateformat setting

Does it exist ? Is it connected to:
Our setting changed and I don't know why and where.
So all the sp's that that expect data to be in ymd is now ydm and conversion varchar->date fails with out-of-range datetime.

You might try reposting this under the SQL 2005 zone for better results if these don't help...

Dear Paranormastic,

thank you for your effort. Though your answer was kind of sloppy and did not give solution. It appears to me that you did not read it thoroughly. I did not ask how to parse format, I was asking about default settings. Finally, we did more Googling and found the answers.
Here is the correct answer: default language specifies the dateformat. So look under login's default language and you'll know how date data will be interpreted. The order it is stored in DB is in this case irrelevant.

Case closed.
I'll five you 1/4 of poins designated if I manage to find out how.
