Good day.

The issue I am facing is that we have several paritioned tables and they are Partitioned by a Date data type column. However, due to the fact that we need to now capture time elements in our processing it is required that we convert this to a datetime. I am trying to determine if in this case its possible to just convert the data type without having to break up the partition and redefine it.

One of my colleagues said that in talking with a friend that this may be possible. Any feedback would be welcome. Thanks.
