I am using this as an example:

BETWEEN GETDATE() - 14 AND GETDATE()

I would like to pull data that is between 9/1/2008 and 14 days prior to today.  How do I need to change the above code to make that work?

what about this:

WHERE yourfield >= DATEADD(MONTH, -1, CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), CONVERT(DATETIME, GETDATE(), 120), 120) ) 
  AND yourfield >= DATEADD(DAY, -14, CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), CONVERT(DATETIME, GETDATE(), 120), 120) )

sorry, second >= should be <

WHERE yourfield >= DATEADD(MONTH, -1, CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), CONVERT(DATETIME, GETDATE(), 120), 120) ) 
  AND yourfield < DATEADD(DAY, -14, CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), CONVERT(DATETIME, GETDATE(), 120), 120) )

This is what you want.

select * from YourTable
where [Date] >= convert(datetime,convert(varchar(11),getdate()-14,101),101)
and [Date] < convert(datetime,convert(varchar(11),getdate(),101),101)

9/1/2008 will never change but the 14 days from now will.  Is the above solutions still applicable?
