    like this:
    PHP Code:
    list($year,$month) = str_split(200709,4); 
    Basically, you're wanting to treat the number as a string (which PHP will do for you) and split it after the 4th character, giving a 4-character 'chunk' and a 2-character one. str_split returns an array, so using list() lets you assign the values directly to variables.
