I have a value of ($6.53) that I need to convert to money.  The () is messing up the following syntax so I need to know how to work around it.

convert(money, sales)

Any help here?

convert(money, replace(replace(sales, '(', ''), ')', '' )

Well, i don't see any difference with and Without () .. but you think removing () will solve your problem use replace

SELECT CONVERT (MONEY,REPLACE(REPLACE(Sales,'(',''),'(',''))

select convert(money, ABS(sales))

probably the value ($6.53) is shown here should be a negative number and try using ABS function to negate it
