If you want to update a time field with a datetime value you can do it directly. Example:
UPDATE TableName
SET ColTime = ColDateTime

Open in new window

Aneilg, all the options will do the same. You just need to chose if you want it in an implicit way (my example) or explicit (the others examples).
