I'm sure this is simple but I can't seem to figure it out. I need to format my date field to just mm/dd. How can I do this in my SQL Query?

You could just use:

select right('0' + cast(month(getdate()) as nvarchar(2)), 2) + '/' + right('0' + cast(day(getdate()) as nvarchar(2)), 2)

Open in new window

Or relying on truncation:

select convert(nvarchar(5), getdate(), 101)

FORMAT function is available since SQL Server 2012. If you're using 2012 version or superior then you can use SELECT FORMAT( @d, 'MM/dd', 'en-US' )
