Was that solution similar to this?
Code:
select convert(varchar(10),getdate(),103)
Cheers!

I find these functions handy:

------------------cut n paste----------------
  function ddmmyyyy(varDate)
     ddmmyyyy = Day(DateValue(varDate)) & "/" & Month(DateValue(varDate)) & "/" & Year(DateValue(varDate))
  end function

  function mmddyyyy(varDate)
     mmddyyyy = Month(DateValue(varDate)) & "/" & Day(DateValue(varDate)) & "/" & Year(DateValue(varDate))
  end function

  response.write ddmmyyyy(now) & " = dd/mm/yyyy format<Br>"

  response.write mmddyyyy(now) & " = mm/dd/yyyy format<Br>"
-----------------------------------------
