Hi,

How have you stored the UTC DateTime?

Have you seen the GetUTCDate() function? It returns a datetime.

In that instance it is a matter of changing the UTC date using DateAdd function

For example ...

declare @UTCDiff     integer
declare @UTCStart     datetime
declare @LocalStart     datetime

declare @Local          datetime
declare @UTC          datetime

select @UTCStart = GetUTCDate(), @LocalStart = Getdate()

select @UTCDiff = -datediff( hour, @UTCStart, @LocalStart )

select @UTC = GetUTCDate(), @Local = getDate()

select @UTC, dateadd( hour, @UTCDiff, @Local ), @Local

There are no doubt better ways to figure out the time zone, but from TSQL I figure this is the quickest ...

Regards
  David
