The next question is... do you understand why it works???

--Jeff Moden

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

I really appreciate the way how most of the frequent SQL gurus at SQL central try to feed the concept instead of just providing the answers.

But this one is not working for SELECT CONVERT(CHAR(6), '2012-09-15', 112);

i mean When we provide a hard coded date.

Because that is not a hard-coded date. It is a hard-coded string defined as CHAR(10) being converted to another string defined as CHAR(6).

Modify it to this:

SELECT convert(char(6), cast('2012-09-15' As date), 112);

As mentioned, you need to convert that string to a date first.

But, even better yet, follow the practice of hard-coding dates following the ISO standard. YYYYMMDD, without hyphens. That avoids issues with localization and conversion.
