Have a oracle table which has a date field in it.  Trying to figure out how to pull the information back where date field equals current date

TABLE_A
Field Name         Type               Length
Name                 varchar2          50
Date_entered     Date                  7

Just wanting something like

you want this:
Select * from TABLE_A where Date_entered >= trunc(sysdate) and Date_Entered < trunc(sysdate+1)
