Hi Experts,
Is there any equivalent LINQ query for this SQL?
 
SELECT DATENAME(mm,Date), DATENAME(dw,Date)
FROM Order

Thanks

Not 100% sure if this'll work, but something like this should do it -


Dim query = From o In Order _
            Select  MonthName = o.Date.Value.ToString("MMM") _
		,WeekDayName  = o.Date.Value.DayOfWeek.ToString()

Open in new window

No, not the DATENAME function as such is not supported by LINQ language reference, but you should be able to apply VB.NET/C# functions to returned values..
