This is SQL 2000....

I have a piece of SQL code and I do a comparision. See below.
That works but I created a table to hold "cut off" hours for shipments. Now, I dont know how to do the comparison..i somehow need to concat "date" of "getdate" to "time" from the table...then do the comparison..

see below please
--This is how it currently works...we want to check the *hour*
DECLARE @CUTOFF DATETIME
declare @poDate datetime

SET @CUTOFF = dateadd(hour,16,CONVERT(VARCHAR,GETDATE(),101))
set @poDate ='2011-02-04 10:38:00.000'

-- Then compare
If @poDate <= @cutoff Begin
 .....
End

------ This is what i want to do -----------

-- But for cutoff date, I created a table with values like this, looking at the *hour*
 --1900-01-01 15:00:00.000
 --1900-01-01 19:00:00.000
create table #cutoff
(
   id int identity,
   shipmethod varchar(20),
   cutoffHour datetime

)
insert into #cutoff ('USPS','1900-01-01 16:00:00.000')
insert into #cutoff ('UPSA','1900-01-01 19:00:00.000')
/*
But now, the date is "1900-01-01" and I cant just do a comparision. I think I need to somehow get the "date" part from getdate()
and concat it to Time part and then do the comparision. 
*/
select @cutoffhour = cutoffhour from #cutoff --somehow concat Date of getdate to time from cutoff hour

If @poDate <= @cutoffHour Begin
 .....
End

pls check below code. It will  concat "date" of "getdate" to "time" from the table:

select cast(getdate() as int)+ @cutoffhour

IF YOU HAVE A CUT OFF HOUR THEN WHY NOT JUST STORE The hour and compare the hours?


isn't your table too simplistic? won't the cut off time depend on the actual date/day of week etc....

so you should have two tables... 1 for the default  cut off hours per day of the week... by method
and the second as an exception table to cater for national holidays etc....

hour(date)

convert(char(8),getdate(),112)  give the YYYYMMDD date to which you can then attach a character time component

 as HH:MM  (with a space between the date and the time component....

Hi,

In your original query you can use the below line:
 
select @cutoffhour = convert(char(10), @poDate, 111) 
              + cutoffhour from #cutoff --somehow concat Date of getdate to time from cutoff hour

Open in new window


And this will include your cutOffHour with the PoDate.
