Hi,

i'VE A DATE  IN  YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS:FF and I need to convert it to dd-mon-yyyy

so for example I need to change  2010-11-05 00:00:00.000 to 05-Nov-2010.

Any help would be much appreciated.

"DATE  IN  YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS:FF"

firs of all date column does not have any format ;) if you have a date column and you want to display it in "dd-mon-yyyy" use

replace(convert(varchar, datetime_column, 106),' ', '-')
