Hi,

I have around 4 different columns with dates in it and these columns are string/varchar data types..

need to derive a column from these 4 fields call it as Bucket ..got stuck with converting the string as these columns has some text in it like ---------- ----- ----H which can be converted into some dummy date say 1900-01-01

based on Today's date - get the buckets into 7 days, 14 days, 21 days, 28 days, 28Over

look for each value in each field and derive is it 7 days from today, 14 days from today, Etc in one single column called bucket

---------- ----- ----H - this is what I see when I query In SQL server mgmt. studio but when I paste into excel it shown as #NAME? - any help please
