is there a better way of concatenating date type

user9115 Published in September 19, 2018, 11:30 am

I have Date Type colum with data looking like this:

2011-07-01 00:00:00.000

And i want to recive from that something like


there is my way, but probably could be done better

SELECT CAST(YEAR(ModifiedDate) AS varchar(15)) + '-' + CAST(MONTH(ModifiedDate) AS varchar(15)) + '-' + CAST(DAY(ModifiedDate) AS varchar(15))
FROM Sales.SalesOrderDetail

  • What version of SQL Server? From 2012 onwards, FORMAT is available, which makes this (almost) trivial. – Jeroen Mostert Apr 16 at 14:10
  • do you have to have hypens? this will be slashes SELECT CONVERT(char(10), GetDate(),126) – MichaelEvanchik Apr 16 at 14:12
  • I'm working on 2014, thanks for pointing that. – Philipchuck Apr 16 at 14:13

    Cast to date instead of trying to manipulate localized strings. Why create a string when you want a date ? – Panagiotis Kanavos Apr 16 at 14:14

    Why not leave it to the client to do the formating in whatever way it sees fit? Just return the date type directly. – Alejandro Apr 16 at 14:14
