Most of the times we wouldn't want the time part of the dates to be stored or retrieved when dealing with only days. But the data type "datetime" in sql always includes the time even though you don't want it. There is no other data type in sql to store or retrieve the date without time. In this case we need to strip the time part from the date and store the remaining in database. To do this favor, I have come up with the below sql code which strips the time part from the date time.
declare @date datetime;
set @date = getdate();
select cast(convert(varchar, @date, 101) as datetime) --Strips time element from the date time
The above code will work like this:
If you have the date time 25/09/2009 12:36:40:654 then this will be converted as 25/09/2009 00:00:00:000
