Hi

I have a stored proc in MSSQL 2005 to insert datetime datatype by getDate()

However, it inserted 2009-04-04 00:53:05.000

How can it just insert 2009-04-04 to the datetime field in the table?

you can use this:
 INSERT dateadd(day, 0, datediff(d,0,getdate()))

Open in new window

As catherine shows, you can use dateadd to strip the time component.  But when you store it as a datetime value, it will store the time (00:00:00.000) as midnight.  SQL Server 20005 doesn't have a DATE date type.  That wasn't added until SQL 2008.

convert(varchar(50), getdate(), 102)
or
convert(varchar(50), getdate(), 111)

If the field is a datetime field it will still store the time as 00:00:00:000 with your example Budrophius, as Brandon explains above.  If not, then it will certainly be possible to store just the date.

You are correct catherinelouise.  techques, as already mentioned, the date will be stored as a datetime.  To query the date in the format you requested use one of the convert functions I posted.
