Hi How can I set just the time value of a datetime:

for example

DECLARE @ENDDATE SMALLDATETIME
SET @ENDDATE = GETDATE()

If i wanted to then amend the time value of @ENDDATE, how would I do this?

make sure that you store that value in a Varchar column
declare @Time = varchar(10)
select @Time = CONVERT(varchar,getdate(), 108)

say i have

SET @TESTDATE = GETDATE()

That will give me the date and time for now.

But say I wanted to set the time value of @TESTTIME to 09:30 for example.

How can i do this?
