I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Best is relative, but assuming it's a DATE type, one way is using CONVERT with the appropriate style:

SELECT  CONVERT(varchar, @yourDateValue, 105)  --- produces 'dd-mm-yyyy'

For newer versions you can also use FORMAT()

           SELECT FORMAT(@yourDateValue, 'dd-MM-yyyy')
