Hi There,

There is no function for this in SQL 2005 and this is a known issue. Take a look at this table and code to get different timezone stamps.

http://www.codeproject.com/KB/database/SQL2005_TIME_ZONES.aspx

In SQL Server 2008, Microsoft type for datetime called  the datetimeoffset data type.

Cheers,

I would just use the getutcdate() built-in function to do the job. For example, the below will give you local time in New Delphi, which is UTC + 5:30

select dateadd(min, 30, dateadd(h, 5, getutcdate()))

Open in new window
