you can use the query

SELECT SUBSTR(DATE_COL,3,4)||SUBSTR(DATE_COL,1,2) FROM TABLE

P.S: MMYYYY is not a valid date format ....

what you are saying is that you have a CHAR column that contains a MMYYY formated value and you want to have the result be YYMMM.

Ashimer gave you a very workable solution to re-format your char data.
