How to select date without time in SQL

When I select date in SQL it is returned as 2011-02-25 21:17:33.933. But I need only the Date part, that is 2011-02-25. How can I do this?


  • I guess he wants a string.

    select convert(varchar(10), '2011-02-25 21:17:33.933', 120)

    120 here tells the convert function that we pass the input date in the following format: yyyy-mm-dd hh:mi:ss.
