Hi All,

I'm trying to write a query which will give me difference between two datetime columns, but the problem is I get answer only in minutes or seconds. I want to have the answer as hh:mm:ss. Below is the query I'm using

For example

Results

X          y       [Total Time] (in mins)
abc     fcd      8

But I want

x          y        [Total Time] (in mm:ss)
abc    fcd        8:24


Thanks
SELECT X,Y,Z, DATEDIFF("n",[Start time], [End time]) as [Total Time]
FROM  [Table  A]
