Hey guys,

I am using SyBase SQL Anywhere v10. I have a column called timestart and issuing the command "select timestart from transaction" returns "1/31/2013 4:19:03 PM". I need it to return "2013-01-31 16:19:03". I know there is a convert function, but I can't seem to get it to work.

Any ideas?

try:

convert(varchar, [your_date_field_here] ,120)

Sybase documentation for this is available at:
http://dcx.sybase.com/1001/en/dbrfen10/rf-convert.html

or my article on SQL Sever date styles (you will see the similarity immediately)
