I want the date to be displayed with MM\DD\YYYY instead of the default, with the year first. What's the command to do this. Thanks

Sorry, I'm looking to do this in SQL. Thanks.

I had a look in the MySQL manual and found this. Look particularly at the first additional comment at the bottom.

If its part of JDBC, use ResultSet.getDate() and Java's SimpleDateFormat to change the format. The specific command varies on different databases.
