Hello all,
in the Datetime field fo my table, I have this datetime value (for example):

2012-12-13 16:05:20.850

and in my C# code I got this value without millisecond:

2012-12-13 16:05:21

Now I have to write a query that use this value to get my record, but if I write:

2012-12-13 16:05:21 = 2012-12-13 16:05:20.850

I got nothing (obviously).

How can I solve this problem?

May be you can do something like this

compare after casting to date

CAST('2012-12-13 16:05:20.850' as DATE) = CAST('2012-12-13 16:05:21' as DATE)

where dte >= @d and dte < dateadd(ss,1,@d)

You could do an operation on the date to get rid of the milliseconds but that would mean it couldn't us an index.

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
SSIS can be used in a similar way.
