Dear Experts,

Could anybody assist me with a good resource or some advice to calculate the following date ranges.

1) Month to date.

SELECT * FROM Xyz WHERE DateField BETWEEN '1st of the month and 'today midnight'

2) Year to date.

SELECT * FROM Xyz WHERE DateField BETWEEN '1st of Jan this year and 'today midnight'

Any help or pointers would be appreciated
