I currently have integer values in the database examples:

1077558217
1077642495
1077641785

That need to be converted to logical date and time.  
Any suggested functions for SQL Server 2000 or SQL Server 7?

Thanks

This number is the number of SECONDS since 1970, 01, 01

It is stored into the database as an int (4)

If you know that 1077558217 is for ex: 01/01/2004
then 1077642495 is the date:
1077642495 - 1077558217 + cast('01/01/2004' as datetime)

Lets say the field name is

mydate

Criteria would be
mydate-1075400710 + Cast('01/29/2004' as datetime)

e.g. print dateadd(ss, 1077641785, '01/01/1970')

That will just give you whole days.  If that's what you want, you can do this:


SELECT DATEADD(DAY, yourIntValue / 86400, '1970-01-01')


Note, then, that the time on the final result will always be midnight, because "/" will drop any remainder.

The earlier version:

SELECT DATEADD(SECOND, yourIntValue, '1970-01-01')

would give you a full time, including hours, minutes and seconds, which better matches your original request of:
"Convert UTC Date to MM/DD/YYYY HH MM SS"

This is not correct.  
If you test with real int representing UTC, such as 1104178047, the above function will report 2004-12-27, but the correct answer is 2005-03-02.  I will repost quesiton.
