Thanks so much....
I bit of a brain crap ... or just being a SPAZZ!!
I was testing with
DECLARE @Date varchar(8)
set @Date='Jul 24 2013 8:05AM'
SELECT CONVERT( datetime, @date)
select cast(cast('Jul 24 2013 8:05AM' as date) as datetime)
wondering why I was coming up with 2002-07-24......
BTW While I'm asking stupid questions....
How do I color code my code in replies?
Thanks Again and have a great date
