TODATETIMEOFFSET ( expression , time_zone )

expression

Is an expression that resolves to a datetime2 value.

Note Note

The expression cannot be of type text, ntext, or image because these types cannot be implicitly converted to varchar or nvarchar.

time_zone

Is an expression that represents the time zone offset in minutes (if an integer), for example -120, or hours and minutes (if a string), for example ‘+13.00’. The range is +14 to -14 (in hours). The expression is interpreted in local time for the specified time_zone.

Note Note

If expression is a character string, it must be in the format {+|-}TZH:THM.

datetimeoffset . The fractional precision is the same as the datetime argument.

A. Changing the time zone offset of the current date and time

The following example changes the zone offset of the current date and time to time zone -07:00.

DECLARE @todaysDateTime datetime2;
SET @todaysDateTime = GETDATE();
SELECT TODATETIMEOFFSET (@todaysDateTime, '-07:00');
-- RETURNS 2007-08-30 15:51:34.7030000 -07:00

B. Changing the time zone offset in minutes

The following example changes the current time zone to -120 minutes.

DECLARE @todaysDate datetime2;
SET @todaysDate = GETDATE();
SELECT TODATETIMEOFFSET (@todaysDate, -120);
-- RETURNS 2007-08-30 15:52:37.8770000 -02:00

C. Adding a 13-hour time zone offset

The following example adds a 13-hour time zone offset to a date and time.

DECLARE @dateTime datetimeoffset(7)= '2007-08-28 18:00:30';
SELECT TODATETIMEOFFSET (@dateTime, '+13:00');
-- RETURNS 2007-08-28 18:00:30.0000000 +13:00
