I've created a views that will list all the products- ProductID and quantity, that were ordered (OrderDate) in last twenty four hours between getdate()-1 and getdate().


create view ProductsSold
as
select orderdetails.ProductID, orderdetails.OrderQty, orders.OrderDate
from OrderDetails inner join Orders
on OrderDetails.salesOrderID = Orders.salesOrderID
where OrderDate > dateadd(d, -1, getdate()) and OrderDate < getdate()

I also tried these:
 Where datediff(hh,orderdate,getdate()) <= 24
Where datediff(d,orderdate,getdate()) = 1

but they all produced different results. I thought they would produced the same results.
is it possible to say: where OrderDate between getdate()-1 and getdate()

yes you can just use

where OrderDate between getdate()-1 and getdate()

the differences:
1.Where datediff(hh,orderdate,getdate()) <= 24
a.datediff HH returns only the difference between the hours, and ignores minutes. so you get some more orders creeping into the result set

2.Where datediff(d,orderdate,getdate()) = 1
a.same as above. datediff(d, '2007-01-01', '2007-01-02 23:59:59') is 1

I think this will work for you..

select orderdetails.ProductID, orderdetails.OrderQty, orders.OrderDate
from OrderDetails inner join Orders
on OrderDetails.salesOrderID = Orders.salesOrderID
where OrderDate > DATEADD(hh,-24,getdate())
