Hi All,

I have a table called Table1 with a field Date (varchar type).  The records are like this;

05/21/08
07/02/08
06/04/08
06/10/08


I want to convert the above into datetime (yyyy-mm-dd format)....in the above example my output should be;

2008-05-21
2008-07-02
2008-06-04
2008-06-10

How can i do this?

Please help.
