Pass the time in a parameter (best)
Otherwise, if it is varchar, then, depending on what you are comparing it to

WHERE time_column = CONVERT(datetime, '5:30 AM')

WHERE time_column > CONVERT(datetime, '5:30 AM')

dateadd(d, -datediff(d, 0, getdate()), time_column) < CONVERT(datetime, '5:30 AM')

etc

The last one compares that the TIME portion of a datetime field is less than 5:30 am (regardless of date)

Also0 my data type for that fileld is datetime so the data that get stored (time portion) is in 24 hour clock . I think will need to convert left side of the where clause to match right side of the query

Do you want all the records logged after 5.30 AM? The last query by cyberkiwi should work to compare the time part only. You can also try like this.

CONVERT(datetime,CONVERT(varchar(20),time_field,14)) > select CONVERT(datetime,'05:30 AM')

@Erik

The column is supposed to be datetime. The right side is turned into valid [date]time to compare against it.

try this.
CONVERT(datetime,CONVERT(varchar(20),bodyData ,14)) BETWEEN CONVERT(datetime, '7:29 AM') and CONVERT(datetime, '8:41 AM')
