T-SQL, Select a date range from now and 6 months in past.

Hi Guys.

I need to find a way in t-sql to select a date range from now to 6 months in the past.

We have a field name called DatePublished that holds the date the item was added to the database.

So the results that would come back would be 6 months worth of stories.

Cheers!

check out DATEADD() function:

in short:
where datepublished >= dateadd(month, -6, getdate())
  and datepublished < getdate()

note: getdate() is now, date + time.
if you need full day, resp full month, you will need to add some more to get the "corrected" date value...
