Hi All,

I have a table with a datetime column and I need help querying this column to show records within the past 30 days.

Please could anyone share with me the syntax to achieve this.

Many thanks,

Hello rito1,

Select * From yTable Where DateDiff(day,MyDateTimeColumn,GetDate()) <= 30

Should do that.
