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.

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.

Calculate the sum first, then convert the answer to time.

{Edit} And, yes... I see that Luis already stated that. Concurrence is always a good thing. :-D

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

This is an SQL 2000 database my query is:
SELECT EXTENSION, timestamp, CONVERT(VARCHAR,Duration / 60) + ':' + RIGHT('00' + CONVERT(VARCHAR,duration % 60),2) as DURATION
FROM CDR
WHERE (TIMESTAMP BETWEEN CONVERT(DATETIME, '2012-10-01 00:00:00', 102) AND CONVERT(DATETIME, '2012-10-31 23:59:59', 102))
The DURATION field is int datatype and the raw data is 16167. Conversion looks like 269:27 which should be 04:29:07 this is for one call.

You only calculated minutes.

SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR,Duration / 3600) + ':' +CONVERT(VARCHAR,(Duration %3600) / 60) + ':' + RIGHT('00' + CONVERT(VARCHAR,Duration % 60),2) as DURATION
FROM (SELECT 16167 duration)CDR


You should post in the right forum to avoid assumptions that will give you solutions that won't work for you.;-)
