    implimentation and my program won't be functional.

    Default Re: Date Fromat

    SQL Server doesn't format dates when it returns data, it just returns dates
    as a datetime datatype. The "YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss" you see is how Query
    yzer presents that datetime datatype to you in a readable format. Any
    client application will interpret the datetime datatype in it's own way,
    also depending on for example the regional settings on the computer.

    The format defaults to what ever your client has it set to. If you want to
    a specific way then you must use CONVERT() to format it how you like.
