I'm new to SQL.
Here's my question,
I need to get the hour and minutes to show like hm, example (832 or 1125 or ...),
I used this :

SELECT DATEPART(minute,My Field)  

it gives me the info, but I can't seem able to combine both.

Thanks for any help.

I get a syntax error when using
SELECT cast(REPLACE(CONVERT(varchar(5),MY Field 108),':','') AS INT)

My field looks like: May 29 2008  8:22AM
