Basically, I am reading a time value in a database that is being stored in an int data type.

For example 1139678068 is a value in a field called TS_TIME that I have figured out how to convert to '2006-02-11 17:14:28.000' using the formula

DATEADD(s, TS_TIME, '19700101')

Now, I want to write back to the database.  How would I convert getdate() into this integer type of time data using the inverse of the DATEADD function above?

Thanks
