what about:
with data as ( select error, dos, hcpcs from yourtable )
, dups as ( select error, convert(varchar(10), dos, 120) dos from data group by error, convert(varchar(10), dos, 120) having count(*) > 1 )
select * 
from data
where error in ( select error from dups )

It can be done with a query similar to the following:

Example SETUP:

CREATE TABLE #err(
      error VARCHAR(50),
      dos DATETIME,
      hcpcs INT
)

INSERT INTO #err(error, dos, hcpcs) VALUES('error3', '01/05/2011', 77280)
INSERT INTO #err(error, dos, hcpcs) VALUES('error3', '01/05/2011', 77290)
INSERT INTO #err(error, dos, hcpcs) VALUES('error3', '02/05/2011', 77234)
INSERT INTO #err(error, dos, hcpcs) VALUES('error3', '03/05/2011', 77236)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Actual Query to get what you need.

SELECT
      e1.error,
      e1.dos,
      e1.hcpcs
FROM #err e1
INNER JOIN (
      SELECT e2.dos, COUNT(dos) CountDos
      FROM #err e2
      GROUP BY e2.dos
) AllDates ON e1.dos = AllDates.dos
AND CountDos > 1
--------------------------------------------------------------

Not sure I understand the question. In your example, none of the dates are the same so you want to return nothing? But if one or more of the dates were the same, what would you want returned? Perhaps you can post a little more sample data and what your desired results should be.

OK - well, in the below results - I only want to see the first two rows - where the dates are the same -- so out of all the results returned - where there is more than 1 of the same date - then return those rows - otherwise exclude  Sample

ok so insert the result set into a temporary table then run a select against it...


select  ....
   into #temp
 from ...
 where ....

select * from #temp as t
 where exists (select dos from #temp as x
                         where x.dos=t.dos
                            group by t.dos
                           having count(*) > 1)
order by ...
