Hi,
I have defined a field in my database table to store time. The default length of the field is 8. I am storing time from TimeODay which is displaying 12:44:10 PM
which overloads the data. How can I store this data to my DateTime field?

Thanks

Solution 1

If your database field is DateTime, then it stores the data as a number of microseconds since a specific data, so a 12 hour time will not overload the field - it will need to be converted to a DateTime before it is stored.

If your field is varchar then you need to either store your time as 24 hour format (i.e. without the AM/PM indicator) or preferably make it a DateTime field instead.

Solution 2

datetime is stored properly...
when you want to fetch & display just set format in select statement

for display time in hh:mm:ss tt format...
use this
select 
convert(varchar,datepart(hh,getdate()) % 12) + ':' + convert(varchar,datepart(Mi,getdate())) +':' + 
convert(varchar,datepart(ss,getdate())) + ' ' +
CASE WHEN DATEPART(HH,getdate()) < 13 THEN 'AM' ELSE 'PM' END


Replace Getdate() with your columnname
Happy Coding!
:)
