Hi There,

I have a ncharvar column in a SQL table that shows the time as 3:10 PM or 11:35 AM. I need to convert this to military time string format like 1510 and 1135. Any help on this is much appreciated.
Thanks

What RDBMS are you using ? If you are using SQL-Server, you should see the convert funcion: http://msdn.microsoft.com/es-es/library/ms174450%28SQL.90%29.aspx

If you are using Oracle, you should see TO_DATE function: http://www.oradev.com/oracle_date_format.jsp

Thanks for the quick response. I got the desired result using the following conversion..

(CONVERT(varchar,(CONVERT(integer,(substring(PM_TIME,2,1))) + 12))) +  SUBSTRING(PM_TIME,4,2)
