I am extracting data from Sql table's and exporting it to Excel, i am using data conversion transformation between source and target., in data conversion transformation I am using DT_Date to convert the data, when I use DT_date I am getting result as date + time.
However I just want date in MM-DD-YYYY format.

How can I achieve this using data conversion transformation?

try..

(DT_DBDATE)(DT_DATE)GETDATE()

Use yourcolumnName instead of GETDATE()

Try...this then

1. Goto advanced editor of data conversion transformation -> Input & Output Properties -> YourDate Column
2. FastParse = True <<  in Custom Properties >>
3. Change DataType of yourDate columne to [DT_DBDATE]

Hope it helps !!

may be i don't know what's your exact requirement is?

Custom formatting is not possible in SSIS.

I would suggest you to get the date in the format you want, directly from sql database.

SELECT FORMAT(getdate(),'MM-dd-yyyy')

Open in new window


In your case

SELECT FORMAT(yourtablecolumn,'MM-dd-yyyy')

Open in new window


And you don't even need to use the data conversion in the package.

May be you need to write query rather that loading data directly from table.

Hope it will help.

Yes this is good option by Arifhusen.

Also note that Format is only available in SQL 2012+. Format converts the DATE column into string. So don't use format function. It should only used for display only purpose.

You should use

SELECT
CAST(yourtablecolumn AS DATE) yourtablecolumn
FROM TABLE

Hope it helps !
