I'm using SSMS 2016. I have a long date in a file that I want to convert to a shorter date during data conversion. Some of the records are correct and some are not.
convert(varchar,c.Date_Established,20) as OpenedDate,
Results are mixed:
2010-09-15 00:00:00.0000000 did not convert
2013-10-18 00:00:00 did convert
Any help would be appreciated.
Casting it to a DateTime like that sort of defeats the Convert and will fail in places with different regional settings. First convert the text to a DateTime type based on the string format, then again to format it as the text you want.
Convert(varchar(20),Convert(DateTime2, Date_Established, 20),110) as OpenedDate
