I have a query that selects records based upon date < sysdate - 10, to get the past 10 days of actions.  However, I just found out that I need it to be sysdate - 10 @ midnight.  How can I do this within my SQL Statement.

If your date column also has a time portion you will need to trunc that as well.

FYI: Using trunc on the date column will not make use of any index on the column.  If the column is indexed and you need to use it you will have to use:

date_column > trunc(sysdate)-11 and date_column <= trunc(sysdate)
