Hello I have a table "items" and I need to update the releasedate field to look like this 01/15/2010. Right now it looks like this 20100115. How can I update the date field to look the way it should. Should I used substing commands or is there something better.

Is the date stored as a string?
SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(8), CONVERT(DATE, '01/15/2010', 101), 112)
