I want to verify the correct time in T-SQL 2000.
To specify today's date from 12AM until 11:59PM
Would it be specified like below?
For SET @startdate = '2012-12-20 00:00:00'
SET @enddate = '2012-12-20 23:59:59'

I want to be sure about the 23:59:59 because I found some existing queries on a SQL Server 2000 and it is displayed as 00:00:00 to 11:59:59

Thanks.

try to use SQl server function
GETDATE

select GETDATE()

see more about GETDATE() @ http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/ms188383(v=sql.105).aspx

The "2012-12-20 ..." date literal format always uses and expects military time (on MSSQL).
