I have a query that currently pulls all data since May of 2005.  The report that utilizes this data only needs 14 months of data to run.  How can I set up the query below to pull only the last 14 months of data going back from the current date?  Preferably the solution will be placed within the where statement.  All queries are run from MS Query within Excel XP.  Thanks in advance.


Select *
From Table A
Where fundeddate>'20050430'

if you want the full month (starting from day 1 of that month:

declare @startdate datetime
set @startdate = DATEADD(month,-14,getdate())
set @startdate = DATEADD(day,1-datepart(day,@startdate),@startdate)
set @startdate = convert(datetime, convert(varchar(10), @startdate,120), 120)

Select *
From Table A
Where fundeddate>@startdate
