You want to modify the output to one which doesnt happen when you convert a date so you have to manually tell it the format which is why you need to manually put in the extra comma using ','

then do what you where doing in the first place, this is how it outputs

SELECT '(Expires '+RTRIM(DATENAME(MM, GETDATE() ) + RIGHT(CONVERT(VARCHAR(12), GETDATE() ,107),9))+ ')'

(Expires December 19, 2012)

First QuerySET @Prod=@Product_name + RTRIM(@Product_name) + ' (Expires '
+RTRIM(DATENAME(MM, @expriry_date ) + RIGHT(CONVERT(VARCHAR(12), @expriry_date ,107),9))+ ')' +CHAR(10)

Result is : Product : Vehicles (Expires September 30 2012)

Second QuerySELECT '(Expires '+RTRIM(DATENAME(MM, GETDATE()) +','+ RIGHT(CONVERT(VARCHAR(12), GETDATE() ,107),9))+ ')'

Result is : Product : Vehicles (Expires September, 30 2012)
