Storing a C# data of data type timestamp into sql server table and then perform SUM

P: 44
I need to store a c# variable of data type timestamp into the SQL Server 2005 database. An example of how the variable value looks is as follows,


It represents the hours:mins:seconds

Once i store a series of these values into the sql table, then i need to make a SUM of all these values. What would be the best datatype to use for this value. Please help me in this regard.

Until the guys come up with a better one, use varchar to store, then handle the conversion and calculation on retrieval.
