I have the following code in a batch file that runs every night. It exports restaurant speed of service times.

sqlcmd -S SERVER\01 -d Office -E -Q "SELECT DISTINCT QsrUser.SpeedOfService.Timestamp,QsrUser.SpeedOfService.VirtualDisplayName,QsrUser.SpeedOfService.LastBumpTime,QsrUser.SpeedOfService.FirstDisplayedTime,QsrUser.SpeedOfService.TransactionNumber FROM QsrUser.SpeedOfService WHERE Timestamp>= dateadd(day,-360,getdate()) order by Timestamp desc" -o "SpeedofService.csv" -h-1 -s"," -w 700

However, I require the date and time to be divided, rather than showing within one "column" as yymmdd hhmmss so that the CSV will display as yymmdd, hhmmss,

Is this possible?

Thank you

SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(50),'datetimecolumn',105),CONVERT(VARCHAR(50),'datetimecolumn',108)
