I am new to Progress/Open Edge database.  I need to get the date and time from field that is defined as seconds.  

Field Value=  :   start-time =   917872604  
start date returns the correct date   2019-02-01
but I need to get the time  from that field..     it should equal 12:36:44    when I run it thru a converter program on the web.  

SELECT   to_date('19900101','yyyymmdd') + "start-time"/86400 as startDate,
FROM     PUB."sfeventcds"

Any help would be appreciated.
