I want to query from my table(MS SQL) to select orderdate from lastdate @ 4 pm up to currentdate @ 4pm. What would be the query statement?

select orderdate from mytable where datediff(dd, orderdate, getdate()) = 1 ??? how about 4pm to 4 pm?

You can calculate start and end date prior to the query to make it a bit faster
DECLARE @STARTDATE DATETIME, @ENDDATE DATETIME

SET @STARTDATE = DATEADD(DAY, -1, DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, GETDATE())) + '16:00'
SET @ENDDATE = DATEADD(DAY, 0, DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, GETDATE())) + '16:00'

select orderdate 
from mytable 
where orderdate between @STARTDATE AND @ENDDATE
