hi experts

I have table USERLOCK
something like
Id        Lockedtime
1      2014-10-06 15:01:25.170

In my sql i need to return Lockedtime as 2014-10-07 15:01:25.170  (2014-10-06 15:01:25.170 + 24 hours )

select ID, Lockedtime+24 from USERLOCK 

Open in new window

doesnt seem to work , it increments by 24 days
any clue how i can increment the time by 24 hours?

thanks

select ID, DATEADD(day, 1, Lockedtime) as Lockedtime from USERLOCK

Datetime values are stored internally as a double, where 1=a single day, so doing a +24 to a datetime would be the equialent of DATEADD(day, 24, Lockedtime).

Just in case this is for a MySQL Timestamp field*

DATE_ADD(Lockedtime, INTERVAL 24 HOUR)

or

DATE_ADD(Lockedtime, INTERVAL 1 DAY)

----
:) * these might indicate MySQL: "timestamp" that means a date & time and "my sql"
