How do you set a report to pull data from current date (today) with out entering todays date?
SELECT so_.zone_code,so_.cust_ship_to_id,

               floor(substr(so_.end_time, 1, 2) / 8) end_time_shift, -- first 2 characters = hour

count(so_.end_time)

       FROM csi.so_pick_detail so_

   WHERE (so_.end_date = @variable ('Date'))

          

           

GROUP BY so_.zone_code,  so_.cust_ship_to_id,

                 floor(substr(so_.end_time, 1, 2) / 8)

You can use sysdate to get the current date.
See.
select sysdate from dual;

You may try the below suggestion. I have used a trunc function around the column to make sure that the time components are clipped. L
See whether this does for you.
SELECT so_.zone_code,so_.cust_ship_to_id,

               floor(substr(so_.end_time, 1, 2) / 8) end_time_shift, -- first 2 characters = hour

count(so_.end_time)

FROM csi.so_pick_detail so_

WHERE (trunc(so_.end_date) = trunc(sysdate) )

GROUP BY so_.zone_code,  so_.cust_ship_to_id,

                 floor(substr(so_.end_time, 1, 2) / 8)

I recommend doing something like this instead of trunc on your end_date column,
if you have indexes on on the end_time column, writing the query like above will
prevent the use of those indexes, as illustrated below can use indexes.

sujith80's statement looks to be correct syntax though, did you miss a character in a cut-n-paste or something small like that?

  SELECT so_.zone_code,

         so_.cust_ship_to_id,

         FLOOR(SUBSTR(so_.end_time, 1, 2) / 8) end_time_shift,       

         COUNT(so_.end_time)

    FROM csi.so_pick_detail so_

   WHERE so_.end_date >= TRUNC(SYSDATE) AND so_.end_date < TRUNC(SYSDATE + 1)

GROUP BY so_.zone_code, so_.cust_ship_to_id, FLOOR(SUBSTR(so_.end_time, 1, 2) / 8)

you must not be storing dates as dates.

what is end_date?  A string?  what is the format of it?

I highly recommend you store dates as dates,

but, given your current setup,  try this...
  SELECT so_.zone_code,

         so_.cust_ship_to_id,

         FLOOR(SUBSTR(so_.end_time, 1, 2) / 8) end_time_shift,

         COUNT(so_.end_time)

    FROM csi.so_pick_detail so_

   WHERE so_.end_date = TO_DATE(SYSDATE, 'yyyy,mm,dd')

GROUP BY so_.zone_code, so_.cust_ship_to_id, FLOOR(SUBSTR(so_.end_time, 1, 2) / 8)
