I changed

project.convert(varchar(8),start_dt,112)

to

convert(varchar(8),project.start_dt,112)

use

convert(varchar,project.start_dt,101)

instead of

convert(varchar(8),project.start_dt,112)

If i put anything other than 101 my query is throwing error.If i put 112 my date format (output) is like 20081010,
so i wamted to but a  / or a - as a seperator.  That is why i am looking for a style
