Adding a value to a 'datetime' column caused overflow.

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.

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


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

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
have you tried this?

yes, still gives me the same error.  Thanks
There are any rows in your data table with this value in that field?

'1900-01-01 00:00:00'
NO the default date looks like 3/2/1753 or NULL

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
angelIII, I tried your suggestion but it didn't work still gave the error
