-- Here's two ways to do the the month with a leading zero
Declare @dt datetime = GETDATE()

SELECT 'Month with a leading zero', CONVERT(VARCHAR(2), @dt,101), RIGHT('0' + CAST(Month(@dt) as varchar(2)), 2)

Are you trying to return MM{comma}YYYY?

If yes, then (replace @dt in the second line with whatever date you're trying to mainipulate)...

Declare @dt datetime = GETDATE()

SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(2), @dt,101) + ',' + CAST(YEAR(@dt) as char(4))
