There is not sufficient information given to expect a proper reply.
Please post DDL and the query you are executing.

If the data comes from the front end, it might be that there is a
conflict with the language settings.

Some posters advised in this group that the british english version of
SQL Server has problems with the ISO date format, and needs a format
like YYYYMMDD e.g.: 20050925.

Sounds like you forgot to put 2005-09-25 in quotes, in which case
it becomes a numeric expression with the value 1961. 1961 is then its
turn interpreted as the number of days since the base date which is
1900-01-01 (and which is day 1).
