Something like this perhaps -

You could adapt it to suit your filter requirements..
DECLARE @starttime varchar(12), @endtime varchar(12)
SELECT   @starttime = '08:00:000 PM'
	,@endtime   = '09:00:000 PM'
SELECT   COMPARISONFROM = DATEADD(d, 0, datediff(d, 0,getdate() - 1)) + cast(@starttime as datetime)
	,COMPARISONTO   = DATEADD(d, 0, datediff(d, 0,getdate() - 1)) + cast(@endtime as datetime)

Open in new window


not something like:

DateTime >= CONVERT(varchar(10), GETDATE() - 1, 101) + ' 9:00:0000 PM'
Then you need to cast the entire result into a datetime like -

DateTime >= CONVERT(datetime, CONVERT(varchar(10), GETDATE() - 1, 101) + ' 9:00:000 PM')

CONVERT(varchar(10), GETDATE() - 1, 101) + ' 7:00:000 AM')  .. Works
