Sybase SQL Anywhere v10

I am using CONVERT(VARCHAR(20),t1.timeord, 100) and I get "Mar 07 2014 05:06PM"

I want shortened date and I need the seconds as well. 03/07/14 05:06:19PM

Thanks in advance.

Assuming convert is the same between ASE and SQL Anywhere (100 is the same at least):

convert(varchar(20),t.timeord,1)+' '+convert(varchar(20),t.timeord,14)
gives you 03/07/14 17:06:19 (24-hour clock)

convert(varchar(20),t.timeord,1)+' '+convert(varchar(20),t.timeord,36)
gives you 03/07/14 05:06:19.000000PM (eg includes microseconds)

Oddly, I can't find any format that gives you exactly what you want.

It looks like SQL Anywhere is a little different.  Checking the ref docs, 36 isn't listed and 14 includes the microseconds.  I'd suggest giving both my suggestions in my previous post a try and see if they work (and if they include the microseconds).

If it is important to remove microseconds, that can be accomplished by calling some other functions.

select convert(varchar(20),timeord,1)+' '+convert(varchar(20),timeord,36) from dba.posdetail

Returns

03/07/14 2014-03-07 21:37:10.


select convert(varchar(20),timeord,1)+' '+convert(varchar(20),timeord,14) from dba.posdetail

Returns

03/07/14 21:37:10:079



Looks like both are 24 hour mode. I need 12 hour AM/PM with hour, minute, and seconds.

Seems like there's no easy way to do that.  Here's the best I can come up with:

convert(varchar(20),timeord,1)+' '+
case when datepart(hh,timeord)=0 then '12:'+convert(varchar(2),datepart(mi,timeord))+':'+convert(varchar(2),datepart(ss,timeord))+'AM'
when datepart(hh,timeord)>12 then convert(varchar(2),datepart(hh,timeord)-12)+':'+convert(varchar(2),datepart(mi,timeord))+':'+convert(varchar(2),datepart(ss,timeord))+'PM'
else convert(varchar(2),datepart(hh,timeord))+':'+convert(varchar(2),datepart(mi,timeord))+':'+convert(varchar(2),datepart(ss,timeord))+'AM'
end

I actually got it with this.

select convert(varchar(20),timeord,1) || right(convert(varchar(20),timeord,9),9) || right(convert(varchar(30), timeord, 9),2) from dba.posdetail

Thank you so much!

Less code for the same result.
