Hi team
I have been facing an issue of MSG 257

"Msg 257, Level 16, State 3, Line 1
Implicit conversion from data type varchar to timestamp is not allowed. Use the CONVERT function to run this query."

I have to fetch certain data by executing this query
Select * from <tablenamexyz> where columnnameabc = '0000000%XYZ110.2'

kindly sugest me which convert function should I use to resolve this issue.

Very Important crosS Applying yaK Herder
