$60,000.00       $90,000.00
$12,000.00       $18,000.00

Great...this should do it:


select (Sales * day(dateadd(d, -1, cast(cast(month(dateadd(m, 1, getdate())) as varchar(2)) + '/1/' + cast(year(getdate()) as varchar(4)) as datetime)))) / day(getdate())

this should do it:

CREATE FUNCTION udf_SalesTrend ( @SalesValue MONEY )
RETURNS MONEY
AS BEGIN
    DECLARE @RetVal MONEY
    SELECT  @RetVal = ( @SalesValue * DAY(DATEADD(d, -1,
                                                  CAST(CAST(MONTH(DATEADD(m, 1, GETDATE())) AS VARCHAR(2))
                                                  + '/1/'
                                                  + CAST(YEAR(GETDATE()) AS VARCHAR(4)) AS DATETIME))) )
            / DAY(GETDATE())
    RETURN ( @RetVal )
   END
GO

THen, you can just call it like this:

select Sales, Trend = dbo.udf_SalesTrend(Sales)
FROM YourTableName
