Hello,

I'm running this:

select ..... where Create > CONVERT(DATETIME, CONVERT(INT, GETDATE() -1)))

Create = Field Name

I'm getting June 28 and June 27... but I should get only June 27

I even tried this: CONVERT(DATETIME, FLOOR(CONVERT(FLOAT, GETDATE()-1 ))
and
CONVERT(DATETIME, CONVERT(INT, GETDATE() -1))

but I'm not getting only for June 27....    -1 should take me a day back..no? but it doesn't... can anyone help me with this please

Thanks

Hello,
  You may want to try

SELECT .... WHERE create > DATEADD(d, -1, GETDATE())

If you just want stuff from a day ago, it's a little cleaner.

Ah, now I see, try this:

SELECT ....  create >= DATEADD(dd, -1, DATEDIFF(dd, 0, GETDATE())) and create < DATEADD(dd, 0, DATEDIFF(dd, 0, GETDATE()))

Hi ezzadin,

When I compare dates, I usually get rid of the time and I only use the date part. You can try this:
SELECT .... WHERE
create >= convert(DateTime,convert(varchar(11),getdate()-1)) and       
create < convert(DateTime,convert(varchar(11),getdate()))
