When you use d or dd, the time is ignored. If you want to round to the closest number of days, you can include the time, calculated the difference in hours, then divide by 24:

Here's an example using different time values. It will give you 152 instead of 153:

SELECT DATEDIFF(hh,'2011-06-02 23:00:00.000','2011-11-02 00:00:00.000')/24
0

DAy difference

SELECT DATEDIFF(day,'2008-08-05','2008-06-05') AS DiffDate

minutes
-----------------
SELECT DATEDIFF(MI,'2011-10-14 02:18:58' , '2011-10-14 02:19:01') AS MIN_DIFF

if need accuracy in seconds too then

seconds
----------------
SELECT DATEDIFF(second,'2011-10-14 02:18:58' , '2011-10-14 02:19:01')/60.0 AS MIN_DIFF

get all from one using SP

select
*,
Days          = datediff(dd,0,DateDif),
Hours         = datepart(hour,DateDif),
Minutes       = datepart(minute,DateDif),
Seconds       = datepart(second,DateDif),
MS            = datepart(ms,DateDif)
from
(
select
DateDif = EndDate-StartDate,
aa.*
from
(  -- Test Data
Select
StartDate = convert(datetime,'20130715 02:44:37.923'),
EndDate   = convert(datetime,'20130730 13:24:45.837')
) aa
