How to format and concatenate fields in an SQL server view
I am creating a view in an SQL server database and need to combine two fields to create a new field. The two fields are AccountingPeriod which is a a smallint field which can contain the values 0 through 12 and AccountingYear which is a smallint field containing the four digit year.
I want to use these fields to create a new char(4) field which is the period and the last two digits of the year (ex. AccountingPeriod 3 and AccountingYear 2011 would become "0311")
What is the syntax that I would use to create this field
