Datetime Start End - minutes

I have 2 datetime columns in a table - StartTime and Endtime. I would like to find the difference in minutes so that it will round up, i.e. 75 s would be 2 min. How is best to do that?

CEILING() will help you do with DATEDIFF

DECLARE @StartTime DATETIME, @EndTime DATETIME
SET @StartTime = '2011-02-26 16:26:26.623'
SET @EndTime = '2011-02-26 16:27:40.623'
SELECT CAST(DATEDIFF(s, @StartTime, @EndTime) AS DECIMAL(18,2)) AS ActualSeconds
SELECT CEILING(CAST(DATEDIFF(s, @StartTime, @EndTime) AS DECIMAL(18,2)) / 60) AS RoundedMinutes
