Hi, I have a datatype of DateTime.

I want to parse out parts of the value to build my custom string, e.g.
cast(datepart(dd, BeginTime) as char(2)) + '/' + cast(datepart(mm, BeginTime) as char(2))

Problem is I only seem to be able to get the month in a 1 number format, I want august to be 08 and not just 8.  Thought this would be very easy but I am stuck.

any ideas?

Thanks.

why not do it like this:
CONVERT(VARCHAR(5), BeginTime, 103)
