Hi hgbdelphi,
Its because datediff function returns an  int value.
FROM BOL
DATEDIFF produces an error if the result is out of range for integer values. For milliseconds, the maximum number is 24 days, 20 hours, 31 minutes and 23.647 seconds. For seconds, the maximum number is 68 years.

Cheers!

Create an user-defined function using code like this:

DECLARE @SecondDiff BIGINT
DECLARE @LastUpdate DATETIME
DECLARE @CurrentDate DATETIME

SET @SecondDiff = (CONVERT(BIGINT, DATEDIFF(d, @LastUpdate, @CurrentDate)) * 24 * 60 * 60) + DATEDIFF(s, DATEADD(d, DATEDIFF(d, @LastUpdate, @CurrentDate), @LastUpdate), @CurrentDate)

You will need to pass the current date to the user-defined function because GETDATE() cannot be used inside an user-defined function
