2850302 - Is there a server level parameter for timestamp_format - SAP ASE


  • Is there a global setting for changing the datetime format without having to use convert?
  • For example:

select getdate()
May 20 20XX 1:32PM

  • Would like it to change  a different format, at the global level to a different view for example:

select convert(char(20), getdate(), 116)
May 20 20XX 21:24:29
