When using DateTime with SQL Server, I often forget what the parameters are that allow formatting DateTime in specific ways. When that happens, I fire up this code fragment in SQL Server Management Studio and it neatly lists out every possible parameter with example output.
 
declare @Loop int
set @Loop = -1
 
declare @table table
(
    [Date] nvarchar(50) not null,
    [Param] int not null
)
 
while @Loop <= 150
begin
    set @Loop = @Loop + 1
 
    begin try
        insert into @table
        select convert(nvarchar, getdate(), @Loop), @Loop
    end try
 
    begin catch
        continue
    end catch
end
 
select * from @table
 
Sample output:
 
Date                                               Param
