I have to get the current year with June the 16th as a date.

For example, if I run the query now I want to get 2015-06-16.

I tried the following:

CONVERT(DATETIME,cast( (cast(YEAR(GetDate()) AS VARCHAR(4))+'-06-16 00:00:00.000' as varchar (24) ),102)

but it didn't work.

  • I'm guessing you are using sql-server? Have you seen the DATEADD function? Jun 4, 2015 at 19:32
  • yes, sql-server, How to use DATEADD in this case? Thanks. Jun 4, 2015 at 19:36
  • Do you want your query to always return June 16th of the current year? Jun 4, 2015 at 19:39

    If you are using SQL server 2012 then you can use DateFromParts(Year(GetDate()), 6, 16). Check the link for further info : msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh213228.aspx

    select dateadd(year, year(getdate())-2015, '20150616'); Jun 5, 2015 at 5:22

The following T-SQL gives you the result you need.


  • Also: SELECT CONVERT(date, CONVERT(VARCHAR(4), GETDATE(), 112)+'0616'); (this will also work for dates before the year 1000). Your expression will need left padding with 0s to work for such dates. Jun 4, 2015 at 22:24
