lets say i have a database with player names and a date where the player will suspended until.

how can i query my database so when the date is past due then the player will not show in my query anymore.  

so if   Giancarlo Barraza will be suspended from   january 1, 2004   to  august 12, 2004    then in august 13, 2004 i do not want to include him in the results.

I think you need three date filters:

SELECT *
FROM PlayerTable
WHERE SuspensionStartDate IS NULL  --this keeps players without a suspension
 OR SuspensionStartDate > GetDate() --this keeps players whose suspensions haven't started yet
 OR SuspensionEndDate  < GetDate() --this keeps players whose suspensions have ended

The points reflect how important the answer is to the person asking the question, not necessarily how 'difficult' the question is. That's the cut and thrust of the market economy I guess :-)
