Hi All.

I'm using SQL Server 2008. I table datetime fild display value like 2008-09-22 15:24:00.000.
How to modify function
DATEADD(DD, 0, DATEDIFF(DD, 0, DateField)) as Date
to get result like mm/dd/yyyy?

Thanks

You can use the CONVERT function to convert and format the date as a string, but that is really something you should let your presentation layer handle.
SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), GETDATE(), 101)

EDIT: Forgot code sample

You can just cast it to a date. CAST(getdate() as date)
