try this

Declare @str varchar(20)
set @str = '13-07-2007'

select  Cast ( Right(@str,4) + substring(@str,4,2)+Left(@str,2)  as int)
select  Right(@str,4) + substring(@str,4,2)+Left(@str,2)

here is much simpler:

select convert(varchar, convert(datetime, '27-07-2009',105), 112)

The result even varchar can be asigned to integer columns or variables aand even directly used in arithmetic expressions. If you still need integer you can cast it:

select cast(convert(varchar, convert(datetime, '27-07-2009',105), 112) as int)


PS. I know was already answered but I didn't like the solution. :o)
