Update Time on DateTime Field in SQL Server

I'm working on an ASP.NET application that will update times from a table.  I have a stored procedure to select the data that formats the date as a time value only, for example 16:00.  In the SQL table the value is stored as "11/22/2005 4:00:00 PM".

My problem is that I need to update the time, but keep the same date, in my ASP.NET application.  For example, change "11/22/2005 4:00:00 PM" to "11/22/2005 5:30:00 PM."  I'm having problems passing the values to the table in an update statement.

I hope I'm making sense.  Any help is greatly appreciated as this is very urgent!

Your update statement string shoud look like:

'UPDATE your_table SET time_field = CONVERT(DATETIME, CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), time_field, 120) + '' ' + @time_from_asp + ''', 120) WHERE record_id = ' + @id_from_asp

create procedure UpdatetoTime
@NewTime as datetime
as
declare
@strNewTime char(5)
set @strNewTime = convert(char(5),@Newtime,114)
update
yourtable
set yourdatefield = cast(convert(varchar(12), yourdatefield, 106) + ' ' + @strNewTime as datetime)
go

I'm sorry you guys, I accidently accepted the wrong answer.  While I appreciate all the responses, and they were very helpful during a critical time, the response from ved17nov worked easiest for me.  I have posted the error in Customer Support to have the points allocated to the proper person.
