I have two problems with SQL

problem 1

I'm using LiveWire Pro to connect to a DB in MS-SQL.  I need to return all records entered in the last week or the last 10 days or 2 weeks etc. etc.

problem 2

I can entered carriage returns in my textbox which are stored in the DB.  Whenever I retrieve the data from the DB, CR's are stripped out.  I'm not putting the data from the DB back into a textbox - just into a formatted table

1)  

declare @days_back
select @days_back = -7
Select * from table
where enter_date > dateadd(day,-7,getdate()).

The sql above will get you all records
entered in the last 7 days.  If you run this at 2:22 pm
on Monday, Nov 17th, you will get everything entered since
2:22 pm Monday, Nov 10th.  If you want everything from the
midnight preceeding Nov 10th, you need to strip the time information from the datetime [note that any date will
work as the initial @referencedate, it is completely arbitrary]:

declare @referencedate datetime
select @referencedate = "1/1/1950"
select @referencedate = dateadd(day,datediff(day,@referencedate,getdate()),@referencedate)
select * from mytable
where insert_date > dateadd('day',-7,@referencedate)

2)  Don't know.  (These are two completely unrelated questions.
You really should open them as seperate questions (at half the points each, perhaps))

Thanks Bret

I've actually already solved the problem!  I used the following:

SELECT * FROM mytable WHERE DATEDIFF(DD, mydatefield, GETDATE()) BETWEEN 0 AND 7

This selects all records entered in the last 7 days
