Need to create SQL query with time filer

 I have running ClearQuest on Windows and I am trying to create a query that has a time filter.  In a nutshell, I want to query for all the defects that are not closed and the ones that are closed but only in the last 15 days.  I tried to create the query but I can get it to work only if I use a specific day and time (ts).  Here are my queries.

This one works fine:

select distinct T1.dbid,T1.id,T1.title,T2.name from Defect T1,statedef T2,project T4 where T1.state = T2.id and T1.project = T4.dbid and (T1.dbid <> 0 and ((T4.name = 'Project 1' and ((T2.name = 'Closed' and T1.closed_date >= {ts '2008-05-12 04:00:00'}) or ((T2.name <> 'Closed' or T1.state = 0)))))) order by T1.id ASC

But if I change the time to use sysdate it doesn't work anymore:

select distinct T1.dbid,T1.id,T2.name, T1.title from Defect T1,statedef T2,project T3 where T1.state = T2.id and T1.project = T3.dbid and (T1.dbid <> 0 and (( ( (T2.name <> 'Closed' or T1.state = 0) or (T2.name = 'Closed' and T1.closed_date >(sysdate - 15 ))and T3.name = 'Project 1'))) order by T1.id ASC

Any suggestions?

use getdate instead

also you cannot subtract 15 days this way, use DateDiff

I meant DateAdd
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

DATEADD(day, 15, sysdate)


DATEADD(day, 15, getdate())

sysdate doesn't work but getdate() does!
Thanks a lot.
