very similar to this question: [ https://ask.sqlservercentral.com/questions/92630/need-to-get-date-and-time-in-format-of-20120817133.html][1] Here is what you can do (you will have to finish of the CASE, I couldn't be bothered, sorry): DECLARE @TEST AS CHAR(11) SET @TEST = 'Dec.24,2015' SELECT @TEST SELECT RIGHT(@TEST, 4) , SUBSTRING(@TEST, 5, 2) , CASE WHEN LEFT(@TEST, 3) = 'JAN' THEN 1 WHEN LEFT(@TEST, 3) = 'FEB' THEN 2 ..... WHEN LEFT(@TEST, 3) = 'DEC' THEN 12 END, CONVERT(DATE, RIGHT(@TEST, 4) + CASE WHEN LEFT(@TEST, 3) = 'JAN' THEN '1' WHEN LEFT(@TEST, 3) = 'FEB' THEN '2' .... WHEN LEFT(@TEST, 3) = 'DEC' THEN '12' END + SUBSTRING(@TEST, 5, 2)) [1]: https://ask.sqlservercentral.com/questions/92630/need-to-get-date-and-time-in-format-of-20120817133.html

Try this: print cast(replace('Dec.24,2015','.',' ') as date)
