How to convert ddmmyy into SQL datetime


I have an IVR which takes in DTMF values for a date in the format ddmmyy.

I then want to update a date field with those values - how do I go about convert the string into a datetime field?  I'm finding I can't use Convert(Datetime....  because it is expecting the input in a different format.

Likewise if I take in, for example, 1450 to represent a time, how do I get that into a table field to log the time?

Thanks in advance....

try this
declare @dt as varchar(6)
set @dt = '141108'
select cast(substring(@dt,1,2) + substring(@dt,3,2) + substring(@dt,5,2) as datetime)

you have to work the string a bit:

SET @data = '131108'
SELECT @data, CONVERT(datetime, LEFT(@data, 2) + '.' + SUBSTRING(@data,3,2) + '.' + SUBSTRING(@data, 5,2), 4) date_value
