Just note that using convert you are changing the date to a string; therefore, if you still want to treat this value as a date you may want to consider what your need for removing time is.  If you need that just to have records created different times throughout a day to group together, then you can also use date functions like this to make the dates all as of midnight of date.

SELECT *
FROM (SELECT  Distinct c.CustomerID,  e.Name, o.OrderID, DATEADD(d, 0, DATEDIFF(d, 0, o.CreatedOn)) CreatedOn , oi.Quantity ) a

This query raises red flags to me, maybe you should describe what you are doing and someone here can offer some good SQL practices advice.
