## Convert int to time

 Author Message bhelper Forum Newbie Group: General Forum Members Points: 3 Visits: 30 I have a call accounting database for our telephone system the duration field is int and I need to convert to time then sum. The duration would be something like 6974 and I need to display 1:56:14 in the report. Also to sum total for the extension. Luis Cazares SSC Guru Group: General Forum Members Points: 95384 Visits: 21201 I'm not sure what are you trying to do. However, a simple way to convert seconds in int to time would be like this.`SELECT CAST( DATEADD( ss, 6974, 0) AS time)`What happens when SUM is equal or greater than 86400 (seconds in one day)?You must use the SUM on the int value as it's not supported on time or datetime.

I see that Luis already stated that.

Conversion looks like 269:27 which should be 04:29:07 this is for one call. bhelper Forum Newbie Group: General Forum Members Points: 3 Visits: 30 What did I post wrong?
