I have a query looking at yesterdays date when run, as shown in the query below.

I want to add last full month as a datechoice, i.e.
f @datechoice = 'Last Full Month'
begin

I need help settin the last full month for @stat and @start1, I will need an @end and @end1 too as well.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks







declare @datechoice varchar(20)

declare @start varchar(20)
declare @start1 datetime

if @datechoice = 'Yesterday'
begin
set @start = CONVERT(varchar(20), DATEADD(dd, - 1, GETDATE()), 103)
set @start1 = CONVERT(char(10), GETDATE() - 1, 101)
end

SELECT    
FROM
WHERE     (CONVERT(varchar(10), field1 112)) = @start

UNION ALL

SELECT    
FROM        
WHERE      CONVERT(char(10), field1, 101) = @start1

Both MM or month will work with DATEADD function.

Hi,

Thanks for the answers.

By Last Full Month, I meant that if I ran it today @start and @start1 would equal 1st October and @end and @end1 would equal 31st October, and if I ran it in December the dates would be in November and so on

Cheers

declare @TempStart datetime
set @TempStart = ltrim(datepart(month, GETDATE())) + '/01/' + ltrim(datepart(Year, GETDATE()))
set @start = CONVERT(varchar(20), dateadd(month, -1, @TempStart))
set @start1 = CONVERT(char(10), @TempStart - 1, 101)

similarly do it for @end
