How do I format a date time field in a CQWP to YY-MM-DD ?

Hi. I have been trying to get the date-time to look good for some time now, but have failed. I have a Content Query web part that picks up article pages from a page library. The pages contains a field called 'article date'. I want to show just the 'Title' and the 'Article date'. Doing this default gives me: My title 10-09-03 00:00:00 I want it to be: My title 10-09-03 Is this possible? I'm starting to realize that I probably have to edit the xsl styles for this webpart but if thats the answer, how do I do that? ThanksThomas Balkeståhl - Technical Specialist - SharePoint

Date format for Year, Year-Month, and Date (Year-Month-Day) where input is not known

I have a requirement to capture historical events in a table. Now some events will have only Year, some Year/Month, and remaining where Date is known. We should be able to store them in the column and be able to sort etc. When publishing the information, we should be able to publish as was the input, Year only, Year-Month only, or Date. I looked at the newer Date data type. I can insert a 4 digit year, but on retrieving it is YYYY-01-01. I do not know if it has input YYYY or YYYY-MM-DD and is indeed a Date or a Year. I am trying to avoid saving the format information in another column or something. For sorting, when records have same Year, I would have another column to do relative sorting... So question is - what are my best options with SQL/Entity Framework combo. And what others have done, when encountering similar - if any. Thanks in advance. --Sharad
