Hi

Our new SQL server 2005 database is using american time format, causing the newly migrated databases to fall over.

Could someone please advise how to change the time format to UK time in SQLserver 2005.

Kind regards

Hi

No help I'm afraid.

The default time needs to be (DMY) instead of (MMDDYY) time format which appears to have been selected on installation by mistake.

Is there anyway to change this format without having to re-installed SQL Server 2005.

Please advise

Regards

No need for reinstallation.

Hi,

I came across that article, but unfortunately it only seems to apply to Sql Server 6.5.  2005 doesn't appear to have the command sp_addlanguage.

Is there any equivalent for SQLServer 2005?

Hi,

I've already tried that, but unfortunately changing the default language on logins, or the server itself doesn't change the language of the server (see Server properties --> general --> language) and hence the date format!

Hi,

Thanks for that.  I had come across that one but I was trying to avoid hacking the registry!!!  If I do a re-install can I solve the problem that way?  Some of the forums I've read suggest even then the dateformat will be fixed to US.

I went with the registry hack in the end.  It's solved the date format issue and hasn't caused any side affects - yet!
