you could construct a new datetime value from it's year, month and day values, and add 1 day to that:

knowing that 1 day is worth
>= start of day  AND < start of next day

Do you need end of day, or start of next day?
This formula does start of next day:

Start of next week is:
DATEADD(dd, 8 - DATEPART(dw, getdate()), DATEDIFF(dd, 0, GETDATE()))

Start of next month is:

How To Reduce Deployment Times With Pre-Baked AMIs

Even if we can't include all the files in the base image, we can sometimes include some of the larger files that we would otherwise have to download, and we can also sometimes remove the most time-consuming steps. This can help a lot with reducing deployment times.

From a datetime such as the above do you want to know how much time it is before the next day/week/month ?

from date '2011-01-01 12:14:44' i need end of that day so output should be '2011-01-01 23:59:59'. I know i could do this by adding '23:59:59' but i wonder if .net have such function (and for end of month, year, week)

Well, since the end of the day (to my knowledge) is always, always, always 23:59:59 you could just use the .Year, .Month and .Day components of your starting date and pass'em to the constructor for a new DateTime with 23:59:59 hard-coded for the time portion.

DateTime testDate = DateTime.Parse("2011-01-01 12:14:44");

DateTime endOfDay = new DateTime(testDate.Year, testDate.Month, testDate.Day, 23, 59, 59);

Open in new window

Or use just the Date portion of testDate, add one day, then subtract one second:
DateTime testDate = DateTime.Parse("2011-01-01 12:14:44");

DateTime endOfDay = testDate.Date.AddDays(1).AddSeconds(-1);

Open in new window
