Hi

I am running the following query to find closed calls in our helpdesk system between two dates, I now need to produce the figure each day without changing the dates. I have created this as a view but was wondering how I can change this to just filter by todays date without having to manually change the date each day

SELECT    TOP 100 PERCENT dbo.RequestLog.RequestID, dbo.UDFVals.Val, dbo.RequestLog.Status, dbo.RequestLog.DateTime, dbo.Request.Summary,
                      dbo.CIID.Alpha1
FROM         dbo.RequestLog INNER JOIN
                      dbo.UDFVals ON dbo.RequestLog.RequestID = dbo.UDFVals.RQId INNER JOIN
                      dbo.Request ON dbo.RequestLog.RequestID = dbo.Request.ID AND dbo.UDFVals.RQId = dbo.Request.ID INNER JOIN
                      dbo.TIES ON dbo.Request.ID = dbo.TIES.RQID INNER JOIN
                      dbo.CIID ON dbo.TIES.CIID = dbo.CIID.ID
WHERE     (dbo.UDFVals.UDFId = '29') AND (dbo.RequestLog.DateTime >= CONVERT(DATETIME, '2009-04-27 00:00:00', 102)) AND
                      (dbo.RequestLog.DateTime < CONVERT(DATETIME, '2009-04-28 00:00:00', 102)) AND (dbo.RequestLog.Status = 'Closed') AND
                      (dbo.RequestLog.Cause = 'User')
ORDER BY dbo.RequestLog.RequestId

btw, you should learn to use table aliases:
SELECT    TOP 100 PERCENT rl.RequestID, v.Val, rl.Status, rl.DateTime, r.Summary, c.Alpha1
FROM         dbo.RequestLog rl
INNER JOIN dbo.UDFVals v
 ON rl.RequestID = v.RQId 
INNER JOIN dbo.Request r 
  ON rl.RequestID = r.ID 
 AND v.RQId = r.ID 
INNER JOIN dbo.TIES t
  ON r.ID = t.RQID 
INNER JOIN dbo.CIID c
  ON t.CIID = c.ID
WHERE     (dbo.UDFVals.UDFId = '29') 
AND rl.DateTime >= CONVERT(DATETIME, convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 120), 120) 
AND rl.DateTime < dateadd(day, 1, CONVERT(DATETIME, convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 120), 120))
AND rl.Status = 'Closed' 
AND rl.Cause = 'User'
ORDER BY rl.RequestId
