Single external monitor hookup to T470s

I have a Dell external monitor that has a nine-pin configuration to connect to a computer and I want to connect it to my laptop.  I don't know which adapter I need to do that.  Some guidance would be appreciated.

"9-pin connector"???  S-Video???  Can you include a picture?  Do you mean 15-pin VGA?

Are you looking for a docking station kind of solution of a simple dongle?  Dock uptions are more complicated.  Here is a simple dongle:

Thank you.   No, I don't want a docking station, just a simple adapter like a dongle.  I appreciate your help!
