I have the following query that pulls distinct filedate from my table. I need to add a column DisplayDate to use in a dropdown so an example would be 1016-09-01 and in my matching column I want Sep 2016


SELECT DISTINCT [filedate]
FROM [dbo].[NC_ProviderInfo]
ORDER BY [filedate] DESC

Try

SELECT DISTINCT [filedate], CONVERT(CHAR(3), DATENAME(MONTH, [filedate]) + ' ' + YEAR([filedate]) as DisplayDate
FROM [dbo].[NC_ProviderInfo]
ORDER BY [filedate] DESC

receiving the following  
Msg 245, Level 16, State 1, Procedure dbo.qry_ActiveMonths, Line 15 [Batch Start Line 0]
Conversion failed when converting the nvarchar value 'July ' to data type int.

SELECT DISTINCT [filedate], CONVERT(CHAR(3), DATENAME(MONTH, [filedate]) + ' ' + YEAR([filedate]) as DisplayDate
FROM [dbo].[NC_ProviderInfo]
ORDER BY [filedate] DESC
