SQL – Get first day of the year

I m found a way to get the first day of the year without hardcode in the stored procedure.

here the SQL script.

convert(char(20), convert(char(4), year(getdate())) + '/01/01', 111)

To test it, simply put “select” in front of the pink color script above.

The result, if your system current year is 2008, it will return 2008/1/1!
