    i am reading an .mdf file (sql server 2000 file) in raw format.
    i have a value a datetime value of "f913e300 939b0000"(big endian) which represents value "Jan 16 2009 1:46PM".I had used Coledatetime class to convert this hex value to date time.Its giving me the right date but the time is incorrect.Here is what i tried to do.

    Code: C++
    int date_part = "1st 4 bytes of 8 byte date time value";//0x00009b93
    int time_part = "next 4 bytes of 8 byte date time value"//0x00e313f9/1000

    COleDateTime startOnDate(1900, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0);

    startOnDate += COleDateTimeSpan(date_part, 0, 0, time_part);

    CString buffer = startOnDate.Format();

    I'm i going wrong somewhere.Is there any alternate way of doing this?
    Any help would be appreciated.
