The segment below works great:
SELECT convert(varchar, t1.Show_Date, 105))

it gives me dates like 06-09-2010

Question...
what would it take to give me 6-9-2010?

Thanks

Maybe something like this?

SELECT REPLACE(
REPLACE(
REPLACE('m-d-yyyy', 'm', MONTH(t1.Show_Date)),
'd', DAY(t1.Show_Date)),
'yyyy', YEAR(t1.Show_Date))

You will probably have to construct it manually to achieve that.  Replace the following with your actual column name instead of getdate().
select datename(dd, getdate())+'-'+convert(varchar(2), datepart(mm, getdate()))+'-'+datename(yy, getdate());

That is a interesting way to do that @sammySeltzer.  Per the question format, I think you meant like this though:

SELECT REPLACE(
REPLACE(
REPLACE('d-m-yyyy', 'm', MONTH(getdate())),
'd', DAY(getdate())),
'yyyy', YEAR(getdate()))

SELECT
CAST(DATEPART(day, t1.Show_Date) as varchar(2)) + '-' +
CAST(DATEPART(month, t1.Show_Date()) as varchar(2)) + '-' +
CAST(DATEPART(year, t1.Show_Date) as varchar(4))

Actually, I meant it the way I did it because he has a date field called Show_Date.

He can certainly change it to getdate()...

Either way will work.

@sammySeltzer, as you will see what I highlighted was the date format.  It was m-d-yyyy, but the question asked for d-m-yyyy.  Nothing wrong with your approach otherwise.  I liked that it took advantage of the implicit conversion to varchar for the replace function.  Nice work!  I don't have the table fields on my system, so to run your code I had to use getdate() -- that's why that was there -- not an indication it needed to be that.
