I have two tables in MS SQL Server.  The source field is a varchar data type and has data that I need to move to another table field of DateTime data type.  I need to convert the varchar to a DateTime format.  The data in the source file is in the format yyyymmdd. How can I get the data to append to the new table without getting data type errors?
