i am getting the error "Adding a value to a 'datetime' column caused overflow."   when I try and run this statement.  DATEADD(dd, - 365, p.LASTMISSEDAPPT) < pl.PLDATE.  how can I change DATEADD(dd, - 365, p.LASTMISSEDAPPT) to avoid this.

Thanks

what are values in the 2 fields? you might hit min value of date ...what about:
 p.LASTMISSEDAPPT < dateadd(dd, 365, pl.PLDATE)


resp:

p.LASTMISSEDAPPT < dateadd(year, 1, pl.PLDATE)

Waht type is p.LASTMISSEDAPPT?

If p.LASTMISSEDAPPT is a float "representing" a date, then this value is likely
to be too high. If it exceeds 2936549 you will get an out or range error
(or similar error). If it represents a date, you should cast it to a
datetime.

Example of a field is the value of the fields could be 9/7/2010.  It still does it when I cast the value as datetime 101.  thanks

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

There are any rows in your data table with this value in that field?

'1900-01-01 00:00:00'

which is the minimum year value (1753);
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms187819.aspx

going 1 year back will indeed result in that error.
please try what I suggested first, changing to do the "dateadd(year,1 ,... )"

You might look for this to find the problem data:

Select * from yourtable
  Where IsDate(p.LASTMISSEDAPPT) = 0

maybe the minimum SQL DateTime Value is 1/1/1753. Substruct one year to fields with the value you have mentioned ("3/2/1753") throw the exception
