Datetime HH:mm - zero missing

I would like to select hour and minutes from datetime. I would like to convert @MyDate so it becomes '09:05'
When I do following I get '9:5'  How do I convert to get zero as well?

DECLARE @MyDate datetime='2015-03-16 09:05:57.000'

CAST(DATEPART(HOUR, @MyDate) as varchar(50))+':'+CAST(DATEPART(MINUTE,@MyDate) as varchar(50))

Use the following format

select Right(Convert(varchar(16), @MyDate, 121),5)

Open in new window

Example here

select Right(Convert(varchar(16), CAST('2015-03-16 09:02:37.723' AS datetime), 121),5)

select Right(Convert(varchar(16), CAST('2015-03-16 10:15:37.723' AS datetime), 121),5)

Open in new window

select convert(varchar(5), @MyDate ,108)

for other date/time styles see:

btw: if you have SQL 2012+

select format(@MyDate, 'hh:mm')

Thank you:-)
PortletPaulEE Topic AdvisorCommented:
STYLE 108 is provides just the TIME (it ignores date)

so just take the first 5 chars of the time

DECLARE @MyDate datetime='2015-03-16 09:05:57.000'

SELECT CONVERT(varchar(5), @MyDate ,108)
