the below date.

=Format(Today.Date,"dd MMM yyyy")

I am getting the date rightly as 15 Sep 2011. BUt I want to
get it as 15th Sep 2011. Is there any way in SSRS to do that ?

Hi,

  you can also use the Date Format Options from the Property for the particular Field...


choose custom format and type the following

Right Click on Field and open property window.

Select Number Tab and select format as date and also choose options as you like (DD/MM/YY, MM-DD-YYYY etc. etc.)

HI SThaya your solution below is giving the date as I wanted like 15th sep 2011. But what if I want th to be as a degree on top of 15. because normally th will be like a degree on top of the day.

=DatePart("d",Today.Date)&"th "& Left(MonthName(Month(Today.Date)),3) &" "&
Year(Today.Date)

Go to your PC and select start, all programs, accessories, and then select the Character Map
icon.
In there pick the font you want. when the window shows that pick the dress sign and copy and paste to your code.
example:
=DatePart("d",Today.Date)&"° "& Left(MonthName(Month(Today.Date)),3) &" "&
Year(Today.Date)
