Assuming your server is set to that time, you can calculate time local to the server using this method.


dateadd(n, datediff(n, getutcdate(),getdate()), YourDateField

The problem with this approach is that if your SQL server is in a different time zone than your front end displaying it, the date will be local to the SQL server.
