I have a speciality number I need to create and need the day of year to always be in 3 digits, so I am attempting a Case statment but for anything other than a single digit I get the year 2 zeros and a *. what am i doing wrong.

Original statement
set @TJulian = Cast(Right(Year(getDate()),2) as varchar) + Case WHEN len(cast(datepart(dy, getdate())as varchar)) < 3 then '0' + cast(datepart(dy, getdate())as varchar) END


Example trying to get to work.
Declare @Time as varchar
set @Time = 11
select Cast(Right(Year(getDate()),2) as varchar) +
Case WHEN len(@Time) = 3 then @Time
WHEN len(@Time) = 2 then '0' + @Time
WHEN len(@Time) = 1 then '00' + @Time
ELSE @Time END

I didn't quite follow what you are trying to do, but may be this?
-- this gives you day of the year
SELECT DATEPART(dy,GETDATE());
-- this gives you day of the year as a character string with zero padding
SELECT RIGHT('000'+CAST(DATEPART(dy,GETDATE()) AS VARCHAR(3)),3)
