SELECT MONTH(GETDATE()) today displays the result 5. How can I display or store the result as the character string '05' without using concatention? EG. in Access I would say Format(month(date(),"00"). How do I do this in T-SQL?

Try this query:

SELECT STUFF('00', 2-len(MONTH(GETDATE()))+1, 2, MONTH(GETDATE()))
