'morning. SQl 2k5. I need to modify my access query into an sp. i have started it, but am having issues with the date range. i need the range to be current month (partial or full) and prior 11 months. For example, today's report should reference: 5/01/06 to 4/09/07. Here is what I have:

(I got the date part from a prior post, but it isn't working as a rolling 12 month. It is returning Jun 2006 thru March 2007.)

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[upOrders_WrntyExchsCY] AS
DECLARE @d datetime
SET @d = CONVERT(datetime, CONVERT(varchar(10), getdate(), 120), 120)
SET @d = dateadd(day, 1- datepart(day, @d ), @d )
SELECT ord.ServiceType, ord.OrderType, ord.ReportMonth,
CONVERT(CHAR(8), lmd.Report_M_Date, 10) AS Report_M_Date
FROM dbo.tblOrders AS ord LEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.tblLU_RptMDate AS lmd ON
ord.ReportMonth = lmd.ReportMonth WHERE (ord.OrderType <> 'PO') AND
(ord.OrderType <> 'SP') AND (lmd.Report_M_Date >= dateadd(month, -11, @d ))

that returned an error.

Invalid parameter specified for DateAdd (maybe because you are now passing 'm' as a string instead of month?)

not exactly, but i don't see why that matters, because the calcualtion in SQLwill use the date field, no matter how you format it.

I ended up solvign it with a simple view instead of the stored procedure.

Here is the view:

SELECT     ord.ServiceType, ord.OrderType, ord.ReportMonth, CONVERT(CHAR(8), lmd.Report_M_Date, 10) AS Report_M_Date
FROM         dbo.tblOrders AS ord LEFT OUTER JOIN
                      dbo.tblLU_RptMDate AS lmd ON ord.ReportMonth = lmd.ReportMonth
WHERE     (ord.OrderType <> 'PO') AND (ord.OrderType <> 'SP') AND (lmd.Report_M_Date >= DATEADD(month, - 12, GETDATE()))

In Access results varies if one of criteria in a query is a datefield and the datefield is not in the same format as the criteria.

see this thread

and the selected answer

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/Miscellaneous/Q_22496839.html?cid=236#a18866018

try using the same format in both sides.

this was all in SQL 2k5 - created for an access FE so the formatting issue does not apply. Thanks anyway for your resposnes.
