Dean,

Hi,

Using SQL, I'm trying to figure out how to convert a character field that
contains '27/Aug/2009' into an 8 digit numeric date in the format
20090827.  After the conversion, I want to load it into a field in the
same record.  I know I can substring out the year and the day.  The tough
part is converting the month.  Is a CASE statement my only option?  TIA
