I want to return a recordset of results from just today ie:

SELECT * FROM tblLogUser WHERE LogDate =getDate()

getDate() includes the time, which I don't want, so how do I easily filter that out?

if logdate contains no time portion:
SELECT *
FROM tblLogUser
WHERE LogDate = convert(datetime, convert(varchar(10),getDate(),120), 120)

if log date does contain time portion:

SELECT *
FROM tblLogUser
WHERE LogDate >= convert(datetime, convert(varchar(10),getDate(),120), 120)
AND LogDate < dateadd(day, 1, convert(datetime, convert(varchar(10),getDate(),120), 120))

Okay, that's kind of what I had already (it does have date portion), but I was wondering if there was anything a little more elegant.  Cheers!

not really.
I have on may servers/database a view/function that returns only the date portion, so it can be used in views/functions easily
