Try this..

Declare @EndDate varchar(25)
select @EndDate =CONVERT(varchar,(convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 101) + ' ' + CAST(DATEPART(hh,getdate()) AS VARCHAR) +':'+ CAST(DATEPART(mi,getdate()) as VARCHAR) +':'+ CAST(DATEPART(ss,getdate()) AS VARCHAR)+CAST(DATEPART(ss,getdate()) AS VARCHAR)),109 )
print @EndDate

What exactly are you trying to do here? It looks like you are just trying to format the current date? Have you looked at CONVERT?

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms187928.aspx

Generally speaking it is better if you can leave the formatting to the front end instead of doing it in sql.

Try this..

Declare @EndDate varchar(25)
select @EndDate =CONVERT(varchar,(convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 101) + ' ' + CAST(DATEPART(hh,getdate()) AS VARCHAR) +':'+ CAST(DATEPART(mi,getdate()) as VARCHAR) +':'+ CAST(DATEPART(ss,getdate()) AS VARCHAR)+CAST(DATEPART(ss,getdate()) AS VARCHAR)),109 )
print @EndDate


This returns incorrect results, as does the original. Sean has the right idea. Try this:

SELECT
[Getdate] = GETDATE(),

[Old version] = CONVERT(varchar,(convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 101) + ' '
+ CAST(DATEPART(hh,getdate()) AS VARCHAR) + ':'
+ CAST(DATEPART(mi,getdate()) as VARCHAR) + ':'
+ CAST(DATEPART(ss,getdate()) AS VARCHAR)
+ CAST(DATEPART(ss,getdate()) AS VARCHAR)),109 ),

[New version] = CONVERT(CHAR(11),GETDATE(),101)
+ STUFF(CONVERT(VARCHAR(11),GETDATE(),114),9,1,'')

Thanks Orlando, I'll have a play with this at home when time permits.
