How Do I Add a Date Feild to a Time Field in SQL?

During a recent SQL server reporting service report writing project, I had to write a number of reports where the date time of a transaction was stored in two separate date and time fields.


There are a number of methods that one can use to achieve this, by using either the CAST or the CONVERT SQL functions.

In this instance I will be using the CONVERT function:

SELECT CONVERT( DateTime, CONVERT (Char(8), Tablename.DateField, 112) + ' ' + CONVERT( Char(8), Tablename.TimeField, 108)) AS DateTimeFieldname

FROM Table
