Hi there,

I read that DAY is an abbreviation to DATEPART().

I tried to use

select day('20121019').


The query didn't give me a result but it just says query executed successfully. How do I actually see the day as the result?

Thanks

Nope...Thats wrong. I'm getting the result correctly ie 19

may be you're trying to assign this to variable and then not printing it back

Is this happening only for the DAY function? Do you get correct results for other queries such as
select year('20121019');
select month('20121019');

is there really a dot at the end of the statement ? remove it or change to semicolon ;

else you will get syntax error
