I have a DotNet site that I am creating some reports for with SQL Reporting Services 2005 and I need to build a query that will show me the following:

1. Active Users (logging into site within last 6 months)
2. Inactive Users (have not logged into site within last 6 months)

This is from the standard aspnet_Users log table.  The date field to query is called "LastActivityDate".

TIA for any expert knowledge!

Hmmm.... That doesn't appear to be it.

select * from aspnet_Users
where DateAdd(m, -6, getdate() <= LastActivityDate)

First off, I needed to add a closing paren.

Next, I'm getting this error:

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 2
Incorrect syntax near '<'.

Is that the right operator for Less than or equal to?

Thanks for your help!
