Won't @app_date always be null in your code?

The date format for yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss is ....

CONVERT(VARCHAR(19), GETDATE(), 120)

change your second line to this:
SET  @APP_DATE = ISNULL(@APP_DATE, convert(varchar,getdate(), 101));

and you're all set.

101 is MM/DD/YYYY
120 is yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss

He doesn't want the time, he wants all zeroes for the hh:mm:ss.  Thus, my method fills in the time as all zeroes by only selecting the MM/dd/yyyy.  The rest of the short date time is filled with 00:00:00.

Trust me, I ran it, debugged it and it worked.  ;-)

presumably there is more code somewhere that MIGHT set Appdate...in which case it would not have to do the select and get the 00:00:00...at least that's the assumption I made since the above code wouldn't be of much use on it's own.

Convert GETDATE() to TIME that will take care of time part.

DECLARE @APP_DATE smalldatetime
 SET  @APP_DATE = ISNULL(CONVERT(TIME,@APP_DATE), CONVERT(TIME,GETDATE()))

if @APP_DATE = '2011-02-16 00:00:00'
begin
DECLARE @CONFIRM NVARCHAR(10)
SET @CONFIRM = 'yes'
PRINT @CONFIRM
eND

print @APP_DATE

as getdate() has date and time, you would need to convert to DATE, not to TIME ... however, that would only be possible as from sql 2008.

before, you need:

if @APP_DATE >= '2011-02-16 00:00:00' AND @APP_DATE > '2011-02-17 00:00:00'

That's ok if this really does solve your issue, but the accepted solution is correct for Sql 2008 and the question is labeled as Sql 2005 for anyone visiting this thread in the future.  There are other valid solutions for 2005 listed here.
