I need to find multiple occurrences of the exact date and time in the same "create date" column in the same table. We had an issue where a return authorization record was created on the same date and at exactly the same time, it had the same address but different names and serial numbers, I am trying to determine if there are any more that may have occurred and put some preventives measures in place to catch this.     Exact Date and Time

To find the duplicates...

SELECT DateCreated, COUNT(1) AS Cnt
FROM YourTable
GROUP BY DateCreated
HAVING COUNT(1) > 1

To fetch:

SELECT
	*
FROM YourTable
WHERE DateCreated IN
(
	SELECT DateCreated
	FROM YourTable
	GROUP BY DateCreated
	HAVING COUNT(1) > 1
)
ORDER BY DateCreated

Thanks for the quick response Patrick, but your query is giving me results that may not be accurate, for example  2013-07-29 10:45:04.000 shows 19 occurrences for that date and time this may because I also need to match other columns, such as address state and Zip.

OK, so... the reason I got so many occurrences, which is accurate , is that  that if the customer is returning multiple items it generates a RA number for each and uses the same time stamp.
