Hi,

Here minibgtime and maxendtime are in below format
2013-02-19 16:15:48.000



select
datediff (Mi,Cast((minibgtime) as datetime), Cast((maxendtime) as datetime))/60) as Total_Minutes
from tablename

Now i am getting something like a number 150 minutes but i want to see that as 2:30:00

as 150 mins = two hrs 30 minutes.


Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Sam.

add those minutes to a date @ 00:00:00 hrs then format as a time. As an example:

declare @mins int
set @mins = 150

select convert(char(5),dateadd(minute,@mins,'01/01/2013'),108)

The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle of arrival.

The above Sql Query should give me 2:30:00 instead of 150 minutes, here i have make changes in the above query , just to clarify i have to make changes inthe above query itself.

Thankyou.

Never Mind i figured out
select
(CONVERT(varchar(6), DATEDIFF(second, minibgtime, maxendtime)/3600) + ':' +
RIGHT('0' + CONVERT(varchar(2), (DATEDIFF(second, minibgtime, maxendtime) % 3600) / 60), 2) + ':' +
RIGHT('0' + CONVERT(varchar(2), DATEDIFF(second, minibgtime, maxendtime) % 60), 2)) as Total_Time

from tablename


Thankyou.

Even this would do the work for you and is probably much simpler

SELECT   CONVERT(TIME, DATEADD(SECOND, DATEDIFF(SECOND, minibgtime, maxendtime), '' ) )
FROM tablename
