Trying to change time format in SSRS

sqlcurious asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hi Experts, I tried to change the format of the date for ex: '2001-08-21 00:00:00.000' in the stored procedure by doing convert function. It works fine when I execute the sp but when I look at the report it still shows '2001-08-21 00:00:00.000' format.
So, I tried changing in the report under Expr->Common functions->date time -> FormatDateTime(Fields!BirthDate.Value, DateFormat.ShortDate), though its working for all the dates but then the null values are coming out to be '1/1/0001', I am not understanding that, can you please help.
