my table inserts a date as "5/17/2011 12:00:00 AM", which is the way the SELECT query returns it. How is the best way to retrieve it as "5/17/2011"? Do I format the SELECT syntax somehow?

DATETIME datatype stores both date and time.

If you're using SQL Server 2008+, then you can use the datatype DATE (that only stores date).
