I have date stored in a column as integer type and time stored in a column as integer type. How do I combine and convert both columns into datetime type?
For Example: Col A has 20130314 (yyyymmdd) and Col B has 123000 (hhmmss). My Output should be 2013-03-14 12:30:00

Thanks,
Naveen.

Something like this:



declare @TestDate int = 20130314,
@TestTIme int = 123000;

select cast(cast(@TestDate as varchar(8)) as datetime),
cast(stuff(stuff(cast(@TestTime as varchar(6)),5,0,':'),3,0,':') as time(0)),
cast(cast(@TestDate as varchar(8)) as datetime) + cast(stuff(stuff(cast(@TestTime as varchar(6)),5,0,':'),3,0,':') as time(0));

Thanks Lynn for your response.
The code you shared works for this example but sometimes integer time column or col B can have values like 93000 (9.30am) or 0 (12 am). The number of digits vary in the column.

SELECT last_run_date,last_run_time from msdb.dbo.sysjobservers
One closest example I can think of is from msdb database. Sysjobservers table has two columns that match exactly my requirement. Last_run_date column is a integer type having date number and Last_run_time is a integer type having time number. How to get datetime out of these two columns.

Thanks,
Naveen.

Or, another possibility (with no character conversions/manipulation):


SELECT
ColA, ColB,
DATEADD(SECOND, ColB % 100, DATEADD(MINUTE, ColB % 10000 / 100, DATEADD(HOUR, ColB / 10000,
DATEADD(DAY, ColA % 100 - 1, DATEADD(MONTH, ColA % 10000 / 100 - 1, DATEADD(YEAR, ColA / 10000 - 1900, 0)))))) AS Col_New
FROM (
SELECT 20130314 AS ColA, 123011 AS ColB UNION ALL
SELECT 20130314, 093015
) AS test_data

Are these SQL Agent date and time values? I used to have my own homegrown functions but I just picked up knowledge of this lttle gem on these forums the other day:

SELECT  msdb.dbo.agent_datetime(20130314, 123000);

PS Forgot to mention the function is undocumented so take that into consideration.

Thank you very much OPC.Three.
This builtin function msdb.dbo.agent_datetime did the job for me.

Thanks,
Naveen.

It's a cough scalar function too.
Combine the best bits of Lynn's and Scott's solutions and roll them into an inline TVF:

CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[IF_Agent_Datetime] 
(
@Date INT,
@Time INT
)
RETURNS TABLE WITH SCHEMABINDING AS
RETURN
(

SELECT DatetimeValue =
DATEADD(SECOND,@Time % 100,
DATEADD(MINUTE,@Time % 10000 / 100,
DATEADD(HOUR,@Time/10000,
CAST(CAST(@Date AS CHAR(8)) AS DATETIME))))

)
GO
SELECT *
FROM dbo.IF_Agent_Datetime (20130314, 123011)
