Use TO_CHAR(date,"<format>")

e.g.:

SELECT TO_CHAR(sysdate,"HH:MI:SS")

Thanks a lot Andrew! Now I am able to extract time. But I have question, don't we have a function like Trunc() to get time part? Here do we need to use TO_CHAR() ? Thanks once again.

Sorry - the stuff I wrote about TRUNC() and strings was rubbish... its been a long day. I meant of course TRUNC() and numbers.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
