@varmav2 , I suggest you to concatenate the date and time and then covet sting to date using TalendDate.parseDate() function.

Thanks Manohar for your prompt response.

Can you tell me where to concatenate the date and time and then convert string to date using TalendDate.parseDate() function??? How can we achieve this in tHMap???
