A datetime has to have a value for both the date and the time. You can use
DATEADD to add X minutes onto a date:

SELECT DATEADD(MI,999, '20000101')

Result:

------------------------------------------------------
2000-01-01 16:39:00.000
If you just want the time without the date then you need to convert it to a
CHAR:

SELECT CONVERT(CHAR(8) ,DATEADD(MI,999 ,'20000101'),10 8)

Result:

--------
16:39:00

To follow on, it there a way to convert a date which is stored as an
integer into a normal datetime datatype.

I want to run a crystal report against MSDB to list jobs that have
successfully run (or not). The only item in msdb..sysjobhis tory that
is of use to me is run_date but it is stored 20031107 as an integer.
How do I get it to change to a normal datetime?

Thanks

S

P.S. - Why, in msdb, did they not make that column as a datetime...?

DECLARE @intdate INTEGER
SET @intdate = 20031107

SELECT CAST(CAST(@intd ate AS VARCHAR) AS DATETIME)

I am pulling an integer value of the amount of seconds since 12:00 am from a SQL Server DB. I want to convert this integer into a formated string or datetime to display a legible time of day. Are there any built in methods in the .NET framework that will accomplish this. If not, any other suggestion about creating a method to do this would be appretiated. Thanks
