Time field in SQL Server 6.5

I'm trying to migrate a MSAccess database to SQL Server 6.5 In MsAccess I have 2 time fields defined as "short time".
I just realized there is no such datatype in SQL Server. Is there a way to handle this using the "small datetime" type?

If you know the answer, please post an example, as I'm not very familiar with SQL Server

Help appreciated,

Ion

There is only datetime and small datetime field in SQL Server, that consists of date and time. there is no date or time datatypes. you should use either character field or datetime and CONVERT function to return only time part of datetime.

The problem is not so much how to display only the time, but how to insert only time from a web form? The user will just type something like 23:15

Can the CONVERT function be used to do this? How?

You can insert just '23:15', it will default to 1/1/1900 23:15 there is no way to have only time.
Example:
create table test (tt datetime )
go
insert into test values ('23:15')
select * from test
Result:
(1 row(s) affected)

tt                          
---------------------------
1 Jan 1900 23:15            

(1 row(s) affected)
