CFPROCPARAM for a SQL query help

I have the following parameter
      <CFPROCPARAM
                  dbvarname="EndDate"
                  type="in"
                  value="#Session.BeginDate#"
                  cfsqltype="CF_SQL_INTEGER">

it's working, but I need it to subtract 1 from Session.BeginDate (which is a number not a date).  So if session.begindate is 30, I want the value passed it to be 29.  I tried doing the following, but it doesn't work:

      <CFPROCPARAM
                  dbvarname="EndDate"
                  type="in"
                  value="#Session.BeginDate#+1"
                  cfsqltype="CF_SQL_INTEGER">

Please advise.

Thanks

Sorry, I'll never know what session.begindate is.  That's why I need to calculate it in the value or set it somewhere else to the value minus 1

ah  I get it

   <cfset variables.temp_date_value = session.begindate - 1 >



    <CFPROCPARAM
               dbvarname="EndDate"
               type="in"
               value="#variables.temp_date_value#"
               cfsqltype="CF_SQL_INTEGER">

YLaw, you need to do the calculations between the # signs.

    <CFPROCPARAM

               type="in"
               value="#Session.BeginDate -  1#"
