1) SELECT 
    DAY(GETDATE()) as  Day, 
    MONTH(GETDATE()) as Month, 
    YEAR(GETDATE()) as Year,
    DATEPART(DAY, GETDATE()) as DatePartDay, 
    DATEPART(MONTH, GETDATE())as DatePartMonth,
    DATEPART(YEAR, GETDATE())as DatePartYear

Result:

Day            Month       Year        DatePartDay DatePartMonth DatePartYear
----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- -------------       ------------
13             2                2012        13               2                         2012



2) SELECT
    GETDATE() AS local_date,
    GETUTCDATE() AS UTC_date

Result:
local_date                                UTC_date
-----------------------            -----------------------
2012-02-13 18:33:07.593      2012-02-13 13:03:07.590



3) SELECT DATEADD(MONTH, 6, GETDATE())AS '6_months_from_now'
Result:

-----------------------
2012-08-13 18:34:43.403

4) declare @datevar datetime
    select @datevar = getdate()
    select @datevar as DateVariable

Result:

-----------------------
2012-02-13 18:36:21.030

5)

declare @datevar datetime
select @datevar = getdate()

/*getting current datetime*/
select getdate() [Current Datetime]

/*getting date 7 days from current datetime*/
select dateadd(dd, 7, @datevar) [Date 7 days from now]

/*getting no of days passed since 01-01-2004*/
select datediff(dd,'20040101',@datevar) [No of days since 01-01-2004]

/*getting month name*/
