have a look at this.



SELECT * FROM orders
WHERE timedate  >= dateadd(day, 1-datepart(day, getdate()),  convert(datetime, convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 120), 120)  )
AND timedate  < dateadd(month, 1, dateadd(day, 1-datepart(day, getdate()),  convert(datetime, convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 120), 120)  ))
AND status = 'transaction authorised'

In sql 2005 the data type is datetime, in sql 2008 you have date, time, datetime, datetime2 etc...

Based on the code you have, it looks like the convert should be converting to datetime not timedate.


SELECT * FROM orders
WHERE timedate >= dateadd(day, 1-datepart(day, getdate()), convert(DATETIME, convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 120), 120) )
AND timedate < dateadd(month, 1, dateadd(day, 1-datepart(day, getdate()), convert(DATETIME, convert(varchar(10), getdate(), 120), 120) ))
AND status = 'transaction authorised'

Right, see that now...

so what about :

SELECT * FROM ORDERS
WHERE timedate  BETWEEN DATEADD(month, DATEDIFF(month, 0, getdate()),0) and DATEADD(ss,-1,DATEADD(month, DATEDIFF(month, -1, getdate()), -1) + 1)


Does that make it a bit more different ? Certainly a lot faster :)

@pigmentarts,

I think there has been a small injustice here. RiteshShah did in fact get the SQL Query correctly coded with both instances of DateTime.

what did i do?  this is what i was thinking..... if i did not split like this then sorry


RiteshShah did a wonderful job at answering my question  however the post 24421776 by Mark also worked and my query did indeed load faster.

I know that RiteshShah answered my question but I felt that both RiteshShah and Mark wills helped me in understanding and Marks query helped me to see the error of my mistake.
