Is it possible to insert a timestamp into a db if it's in this format?

Sep-04-13 07:13

I don't need it to stay in this format. I just need to know if I can cast it as a unix timestamp somehow & insert or if the manipulation to the datetime fomrat has to happen before inserting.

SELECT CONVERT(datetime, REPLACE('Sep-04-13 07:13', '-', ' '), 9);

Woot! Thanks. I keep finding results on Google about how to query the db & convert. I was starting to lose hope

its best to use the ISO date format strings - everything else has a chance of confusion cross locales or languages

formats are: YYYYMMDD or YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.msmsZ
