SQL 2005 functions to convert Time to decimal and decimal to Time

Updated on December 2, 2009

Time by any other name is still time, it just doesn't calculate so well.  After hours on my favorite search engine I thought I'd' share these functions to put a decimal 5.5 back to 5:30 and 7:30 back to 19.5.  you get the idea.
