I am using Microsoft Sql Server Manage Studio Express  C to create another field to store the date that an entry is made, I have been trying to use now() like i used to to in Access but it didn't like it, so what do i do the get the long date format of mm,dd,yyyy HH:nn? or something close

[in sql server] getdate() is the equivalent to now()

but I'm not familiar with that input form so I don't know what is expects/allows
