Hi,

Try this instead, works just as well. Basically I insert a space between the Date and the time and a : between the hours and the minutes



declare @DtStr varchar(20)
set @DtStr='200907011020'
select convert(datetime,substring(@DtStr,1,8)+' '+substring(@DtStr,9,2)+':'+substring(@DtStr,11,2))

Ummm... CONVERT is relatively expensive and so are all of the substrings not to mention the use of a UDF...

SELECT CAST(STUFF(STUFF('200907111400',11,0,':'),9,0,' ') AS DATETIME)

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
