Hi

I have a SQL table in my ASP project as shown in the image below. I am a little concerned
about the [Start date] and [Start time] column. If I query the table the [Start date] comes up with
the date and the time. How do I change it so it just shows the date table

Can you not add formatting to the front end of the asp.net to format so it just shows the date. Like using a label control with {0:d} format string?

SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), GETDATE(), 101) AS startdate

--  [MM/DD/YYYY]  for date format for reference
