Convert Date in SQL


Recommended Posts

Date is created as an INT type in the table. How can I convert it to a Date format (dd-mm-yyyy) in my select statement? It gives an error message  "conversion failed when converting date and/or time from character string".

To change the data type of a column in a table, use the following syntax:

SQL Server / MS Access:

ALTER TABLE table_name
ALTER COLUMN column_name datatype;

My SQL / Oracle (prior version 10G):

ALTER TABLE table_name
MODIFY COLUMN column_name datatype;
