Hello: I have many records in a SQL Server 2008 database with a datecompleted set to a range of values in the year and day, but the time is 00:00:00.

I need to update these records individually and set the time to 23:58:00 while leaving the year/day as it is.

What's the safe and proper syntax to do that?

Thanks

Loads of ways, one is:

update MyTable set DateCompleted = dateadd(mi, 58, dateadd(hi, 23, DateCompleted))

I believe you need the DATEADD function:

DECLARE @Date DAtetime
SET @Date = DATEADD(hh, 23, '03/13/2014')
SET @Date = DATEADD(mi, 58, @Date)
SELECT @Date
