CAST AND CONVERT T-SQL

Trying to take a two step process down to one step.  I'm if got a date stored as 20110119(YYYYMMDD), this date represents  Jan 19, 2011.  

Currently, I'm using a data step approach using a WITH statement.

WITH T1 AS
(
Select  CAST(FromDate AS DATE) AS FmDt
From MyTable
/* this takes it from 20110119 to 2011-01-19 */
)

Select CONVERT(NVARCHAR(110), T1.PgmFmDt, 110) AS PgmFmDt
/* this takes it from 2011-01-19 to 01-19-2011 */

What I really want to do is go direct from 20110119 to 01/19/2011, notice I'm also want to replace the - with /.    

Your thoughts?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Select  CONVERT(nvarchar(30),CAST(FromDate As DateTime), 101) AS FmDt
