Hello Everyone,

So I have a column in my table which is date and its represented as four numbers.
example : 1109 stands for year 2011 and month 9 ( September )

So am trying to transfer the 1109 to this : 2011-09-01-0000
So basically for day its always going to be 01 and for time its going to be zeros 0000, and pad dashes between the values.

this is what I managed to get so far
============================================================
select

case when convert(int, left(edate, 2)) < 70 then '20' + left(edate,2) else '19' + left(edate,2)

end as 'DATE'
from Emp_Date wh

=============================================================

thanks in advance
