I have a numeric date imported from AS400 in this format: 104125.  It's actually the 125th day of 2004.

How do I convert this in MS SQL to a datetime format?

Thanks

Assuming that last three digits reperesent a day and the first three 1900 + years:

select dateadd(day,  your_column % 1000 - 1, dateadd(year, your_column/1000, '1900/1/1') ) from your_table

E.g.:

select dateadd(day, 104125 % 1000 - 1, dateadd(year, 104125/1000, '1900/1/1') )

gives:

Declare @AS400Date integer
Set @AS400Date = 104125
Select DateAdd(Day, @AS400Date % 1000, DateAdd(Year, @AS400Date / 1000, '1900-01-01'))

Thanks for the response!.  That seems to work if your data type is integer, but mine is numeric.

create table t1(x numeric(6,0))

insert into t1 values(104125)

select dateadd(day,  x % 1000 - 1, dateadd(year, x/1000, '1900/1/1') ) from t1

Perhaps your datatype is 'varchar'.  Then:

create table t1(x varchar(6))

insert into t1 values('104125')

select dateadd(day,  cast(x as int) % 1000 - 1, dateadd(year, cast(x as int) /1000, '1900/1/1') ) from t1

OK.  I changed my data type from numeric to integer and this worked for me:

Declare @AS400Date integer
Set @AS400Date = 104125
Select DateAdd(Day, @AS400Date % 1000, DateAdd(Year, @AS400Date / 1000, '1900-01-01'))

Thank you very much!!

Please do not award me any points, I merely duplicate (inadvertently) vc01778's solution.
