On this statement how can I get the records that shows the current date but with 6 hours behind.  Let me give an example I am creating records 7/2/2009 but then I get into midnight  so now the date is 7/3/2009 but the records still being save as 7/2/2009. Now it is 7/3/2009 I want to query all the records that happen on the 7/2/2009 even after midnight.
here what I have a statement
HAVING (dbo.BOX_TRANS.PROD_DATE = CAST(CONVERT (varchar(10), GETDATE(), 112) AS DateTime))

Any Ideas

Not records are showing even so I change the time on the Server to reflect 4:00 AM

You can try using this:
HAVING (dbo.BOX_TRANS.PROD_DATE = CAST(CONVERT (varchar(10), DateAdd(d, -1, GETDATE()), 112) AS DateTime))
This query will return always the day before today.

If I run this query at 7/2/2009 will bring the records from the 7/1/2009,  I do now want this
I want to query on 7/3/2009   at 1:00 AM    while the records are still being saved as 7/2/2009 since its the current day run

In this case, my first post should work.
Use this query to see if the date and time of server are right:
SELECT GetDate() AS 'Now', DateAdd(hh, -6, GetDate()) AS 'Minus 6 Hours'
