Hi  and thanks for looking at my question.

I would like to query a date field and bring back all records for the current year.

Any ideas?

Thanks
PDM

this should do:
select * from yourtable
where your_date_field >= CONVERT(datetime, CONVERT(varchar(4), getdate(), 120) + '-01-01', 120)
  and your_date_field >= dateadd(year, 1, CONVERT(datetime, CONVERT(varchar(4), getdate(), 120) + '-01-01', 120))

Thanks -  thats great.

I am just trying to put this in my ASP code.

sqltext23="SELECT SUM(Tot_Monthly_Miles) AS 'tot_monthly',SUM(Tot_Business_Miles) AS 'tot_business' from Finncos_Data where user_ref='"&varUser_Ref&"' "

Can you help add to this query as it errors.

A little simpler:

SELECT * FROM yourtable

WHERE DATEADD(yy, DATEDIFF(yy,0,getdate()), 0) = DATEADD(yy, DATEDIFF(yy,0,your_date_field), 0)

Great!  I encorporated it like this..sqltext23="SELECT SUM(Tot_Monthly_Miles) AS 'tot_monthly',SUM(Tot_Business_Miles) AS 'tot_business' from Finncos_Data where user_ref='"&varUser_Ref&"' AND datepart(year,Date_Added)=datepart(year,getdate())"

2 comments:
* using  where datepart(year, my_date_field) = datepart(year, getdate()) will make sure an index on the my_date_field cannot be used.  the suggestion given by openshac is of the same results...

  my suggestion can use a index.

* you accepted only the second comment giving that code, bokist posted the same idea 1 minute earler.
   at least a split of the points would have been fair
