I have a very big table in my sybase database.
I need to count the number of rows for the last 7 days.

Could you please help me with a simple sql script.
This query should check the last date and calculate the number of rows for the 7 previous date.

Thanks a lot
Abdel

GetDate() is the T-SQL function to return the current system time. DateAdd is the function to add or subtract from datetime values. So the query above subtracts 7 days from the current date, then checks your date column to see if it's later than that. Anything counted will be in the last 7 days. With a lot of records, it will help to create an index on the date column like this:

CREATE INDEX index_on_MyDateColumn ON MyTableName(MyDateColumn)
