Not sure what you mean.  Can you give an example of what you are wanting to get.

BTW, what DB are you using? SQL Server? Which version?

SQL Server 2000

The code as is displays:  2008-10-20 00:00:00.000
I want it to display as: 2008-10-20

I'm running SQL Server 2000 and when I execute the following in Query Analzyer:

select CONVERT(varchar(10), getdate() - 4, 101)

I get "10/28/08"

Where are you running the query?
