Sqldatasource WHERE with dates question

I am trying to do something that I thought would be simple but it doesnt seem to be.  I have a date field stored in SQL.  I want to create a sqldatasource linked to a gridview with a where clause so it will only display the row if the date is within 7 days of the current date.  So as soon as the value is over a week old, it gets removed from the gridview.  I have tried everything I can think of but it either says I am comparing a date to a string or gives me syntax errors.  Can someone tell me how to do this?  Thank you.

Your WHERE clause should read;

WHERE DATEDIFF(dd,yourdatefield,GETDATE()) < 7

This is the statement I get from your instruction:

SELECT * FROM [IntakeID] WHERE (([Approved] IS NOT NULL) AND DATEDIFF(dd,ApprovedDate,GETDATE()) < 7

Can I use ApprovedDate like this or do I have to do it in a different way?  It is a valid SQL date field.  When I test this I get "Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'SET'." and I have no idea what that means.

Forget it.  I had an extra ( in there.  This works great:

SELECT * FROM [IntakeID] WHERE  ([Approved] IS NOT NULL) AND DATEDIFF(dd,[ApprovedDate],GETDATE()) < 7

Thank you for your help.
