Looking for a "between" statement that will go back 30 days from yesterday's date and end at yesterday's date.

Example if the statement ran today:
...where full_date between ('1/21/2011' and '2/20/11')

where full_date between trunc(sysdate)-31 and trunc(sysdate)-1


if you want to include all time of yesterday then you'll have to include the
time piece in the between

where full_date between trunc(sysdate)-31 and trunc(sysdate)-1 + (86399/86400)

or use >=  <=


where full_date >=trunc(sysdate)-31 and
full_date <= trunc(sysdate)-1 + (86399/86400)

or

where full_date >=trunc(sysdate)-31 and
full_date <= trunc(sysdate)  - (1/86400)

or



where full_date >=trunc(sysdate)-31 and
full_date < trunc(sysdate)     -----  note <  not <=
