I was able to do this

(CAST ('7884' as varchar) + cast(convert(varchar, trans_date,12)as varchar))

Open in new window


my only problem is that type 12 gives me the year at the begining and not at the end.

Anybody knows how to get the year at the end (so ddmmyy instead of yymmdd)

Looking through PortletPaul's article on SQL Date Types I didn't see ddmmyy with no delimeters anywhere, so let's roll our own...
Declare @dt datetime = '11/14/13 22:28'

SELECT '7884' +
	RIGHT('0' + CAST(DATEPART(d, @dt) as varchar(2)),2) + 
	RIGHT('0' + CAST(DATEPART(m, @dt) as varchar(2)),2) + 
	RIGHT(CAST(YEAR(@dt) as char(4)),2)

as there cannot be a 14th Month this appears to be MM/DD/YY

but you then ask:
Anybody knows how to get the year at the end (so ddmmyy instead of yymmdd)

choose the one you want from these:
Declare @dt datetime = '20131114 22:28'

SELECT
  '7884' + replace(convert(varchar, @dt ,3),'/','') as "7884 ddmmyy"
, '7884' + replace(convert(varchar, @dt ,1),'/','') as "7884 mmddyy"
