Not sure how this happened. Today, at 10:17AM, clicked on a button on a page.

Code passes "date" ONLY to the stored proc. I'm using a telerik control and it wont let me add "time". So, i pass the date, and in the stored proc, i contact date to time...

In this example, "10:17AM" came out as "10:17PM". Not sure why and how but this is my sql below.
declare @updatedate as datetime
set @updatedate ='2011-03-25'

-- getdate() (time at that time) was  2011-03-25 10:17:15.000
select 
          DATEADD(day, 0, DATEDIFF(day, 0, @updatedate)) +  
             DATEADD(day, 0 - DATEDIFF(day, 0, getdate()), getdate())

--not sure how that turned out to be 21:10:15:000

Not sure either why you have problem - check SQL server time zone??
..But using day  may give you problem if you are close to midnight

I would suggest to change it to

declare @updatedate as datetime
set @updatedate ='2011-03-25'
select dateadd(ms, datediff(ms,@updatedate, getdate()),@updatedate)

1-st parameter in dateadd is ms - milliseconds - change it to sec or minutes, depending on your app requirements

it's not make sense to me for what you are trying to do.
if you want to add "Date & Time" of current time, then why not uses getdate() right away?

since if you pass in any date which is not "today", then why try to add time of getdate() ?

unless you will have another parameter @updatetime = '10:17am'
then you may use script as below

declare @UpdateDate as datetime
declare @update_date as varchar(10)
declare @update_time as varchar(11)

set @update_date = '2011-03-25'
set @update_time = '10:17am'
set @UpdateDate = (@update_date + ' ' + @update_time)

select @UpdateDate
