How can I do what is being done to create a timestamp in this SSIS task but do it in SQL 2008 in a stored procedure so I can update a field. The Time field is called Time. The field should look like this when done.

1900-01-01 13:50:45.000

You can create a SQL Stored procedure to insert/update the whatever database.table.Time column with timestamp and call it in the SSIS right? Is this what you mean?

UPDATE databasename.tablename SET Time = timestamp;

I want to create a timestamp of  1900-01-01 13:50:45.000 .

I want the date to be 1900-01-01 followed by the time. Person did it in the SSIS package.
I want to do the same thing in the stored procedure.
I want duplicate what he did in the SSIS package but do it in a stored procedure.
