i know i have asked something like this yesterday but  this is a different query

i have a date time stamp in my DB (TIMEDATE)  format is like this 2008-06-01 15:16:00.0
i have a variable passed  called 'datepassed' with a format like this: June 2008

now i need to return all results only in the same month, i have this so far but does not return anything.

       SELECT  TIMEDATE
        FROM orders
        WHERE TIMEDATE  = '#datepassed#'

You can do something like this:

SELECT  TIMEDATE
        FROM orders
        WHERE year(TIMEDATE)  = YEAR('#datepassed#')
        AND month(TIMEDATE)  = month('#datepassed#')
