I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you have a date as string(text) and you want to change the format you have to cast the string to datetime first:

      CONVERT (varchar(30), cast('2007-12-02 00:26:00' as datetime), 101) as date

If is a column that is of datetime type then simply:

      CONVERT (varchar(30), datecolumn, 101) as date
