Subject: [mg124262] split a number to Date format

I have experimental data in spreadsheet format.  The first column is a
time stamp in the format 111205020000. 
If I could parse or split the number 111205020000 into
{11,12,05,02,00,00} and replace the first 11 with 2011, the Date
commands would work fine. I can do the replacing, but am having
difficulty seeing how to split the number into  {11,12,05,02,00,00}.

DateString[{2011, 12, 05, 02, 00, 00}] gives "Mon 5 Dec 2011 02:00:00"

Any help to convert my number to the right Date format would be
appreciated. I am using Mathematica 8.

Thanks in Advance
