I've come up with the expression below in SSIS to remove the seconds and milliseconds from a sql server datetime field and be left with just the hours and minutes e.g. 09:30:00:000 but it seems a little extreme to say the least.

Can anyone offer suggestions on how to simplify the expression?

(DT_DBTIME2,0)DATEADD("Mi",DATEDIFF("Mi",TransactionDate,(DT_DBTIMESTAMP)DATEDIFF("dd",(DT_DBTIMESTAMP)"1900/01/01",TransactionDate)),(DT_DBTIMESTAMP)DATEDIFF("dd",(DT_DBTIMESTAMP)"1900/01/01",TransactionDate))
