I was querying the SSRS execution logs and realized the time is in milliseconds I found a lot of forums and answers to convert. However , I wanted to find out what a good efficient way is. I shouldn't have anything over 24 hours but I'd like to prepare for it just in case. This is mainly for display but I was planning of holding it into a table unless I create a function for after the data is stored for display .

note this is just a 2008 server not r2

To me, easiest is:

CONVERT(varchar(8), DATEADD(MILLISECOND, <milliseconds>, 0), 8)

You'd have to add extra code in front to check for > 24 hours.

Scott,

That's a lot easier than a lot of the ones I saw. Thank you very much it works great. It doesn't look like I have any that are even close to 24 hours. But if someone wouldn't mind adding to Scott's code I'd highly appreciate it as a future reference.

DECLARE @MS int
SET @MS=36345--time in milliseconds

--get timediff in hh:mm:ss format
SELECT dbo.GetTimeDiff(0,DATEADD(ms,@MS,0))

GetTimeDiff can be found here

http://visakhm.blogspot.in/2010/03/time-difference-function.html

this will handle cases where hour crosses day mark

For consistency, I'd stick to a similar coding style:

ISNULL(CAST(NULLIF(DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, DATEADD(MILLISECOND, milliseconds, 0)), 0) AS varchar(3)) + ' days ', '') +
CONVERT(varchar(8), DATEADD(MILLISECOND, milliseconds, 0), 8)

For example:

SELECT
ISNULL(CAST(NULLIF(DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, DATEADD(MILLISECOND, milliseconds, 0)), 0) AS varchar(3)) + ' days ', '') +
CONVERT(varchar(8), DATEADD(MILLISECOND, milliseconds, 0), 8)
from (
select 86476561 as milliseconds union all
select 1907342
) as test_data
