SQL Server: Add seconds to a datetime field?
This should be a softball for you SQL guys. I know I can add to an int field with something like
UPDATE tblUser SET Total=(Total+2) but what is the syntax for adding seconds to a datetime field?
I’m using SQLServer 2008

UPDATE tbluser SET DateField = DATEADD(ss,numOfSeconds,DateField)
Note the first parameter “ss”. This shows that you are adding seconds to the date.
Check the docs for more info.
You should look into DATEADD.
DATEADD (datepart , number , date)
or the full update syntax
UPDATE tbl SET YourDateField = DATEADD (ss, 2, YourDateField)
