ActiveStartTimeOfDay Property

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The ActiveStartTimeOfDay property indicates the first effective time for a schedule.

ActiveStartTimeOfDay [=value]


An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.


A long integer representing a time.



HRESULT GetActiveStartTimeOfDay(LPLONG pRetVal);
HRESULT SetActiveStartTimeOfDay(LONG NewValue);

Scheduled SQL Server Agent activities, such as jobs, can have begin and end times. A job is run at the points indicated in a schedule only between the begin time and the end time. Alter the ActiveStartTimeOfDay property to set the time at which the schedule becomes effective.

When SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) uses a scaled long integer to represent a time, the integer is built as a sum of the hour scaled by 10000, the minute scaled by 100, and the seconds. The time value uses a 24-hour clock. For example, the time 1:03:09 P.M. is represented by the long integer value 130309.
