datediff sql

I need to get a datediff ,  WEEK_HRS, DATEDIFF(n, [total week], WEEK_HRS)
                      AS REMAINING. My weekly hours are entered as CONVERT(VARCHAR, 2095, 3) AS WEEK_HRS.  2095 is the minutes. My result from total week 540 - week_hrs 2095 = 101783520 which is mad.

You don't want a datediff because you aren't dealing with date columns.  Just do a simple subtract.

select week_hrs-[total week] as remaining......

Hi Brandon
Fantastic.
One problem converting remaining to hh.mm using
CAST(remaining/ 60 AS varchar(7)) + ':' + RIGHT ('00' + CAST(remaining % 60 AS varchar(2)), 2)
not working?

BrandonGalderisiCommented:
Unless you put: week_hrs-[total week] as remaining

into a subselect, you can't reference it as remaining.

Rather than me trying to wedge it in up there, post what you have and I'll fix it :)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

All I did was add:

select a.*, CAST(unformatted_remaining/ 60 AS varchar(7)) + ':' + RIGHT ('00' + CAST(unformatted_remaining % 60 AS varchar(2)), 2) as remaining
from (
...
...
...
)a

where ... is your existing query.

This allows you to reference the alias of remaining and prevent you from having to do the formula above.  I also renamed remaining as unformatted_Remaining inside the query so that it could be called remaining above.

You should really consider, if you have the option to do so, changing your data model to not store data in a row per week format.  It makes SO much stuff so difficult.

Hi Brandon

I couldnt agree more. I started off doing as you said but my boss had other ideas he wanted it in this format. "The boss is always right".
Without your help I wouldnt have got it to this stage.

Thanks again

Don't fool yourself into believing or thinking "the boss is always right".  BUT, if the "BOSS" is a competent person and is capable of providing just reason for doing what they desire to do then it is valid that they would have the last say.

Well I happer to be very lucky that my boss fits into the catagory you outlined above, why else would I be struggeling with SQL,ASP and any other script to get this *x**X timesheet finished @ 11:45 on a Saturday night. I still think your approach would have been easier. The concelation is I have learned a great deal. I really need to get around our IT Department to upgrade the server to SQL 2005 , Time is much easier to handle seemingly?.

It's not that time is easier, but you can manipulate data easier.  Using things like common table expressions (which are great for recursion) instead of derived tables make code simpler.
