just an expantion on this, i want my query to check to see if the row was lastupdated within the hour in question.

but it will need to take the day into account too, as the last update may have been same time yesterday.

can i use datediff to check within this hour, or will that check within an hour, even if that falls in the previous hour

that would be like this for the last hour:
where yourfield >= dateadd(hour, -1, getdate())
  and yourfield <= getdate()

Open in new window


otherwise, you can also check on the date part as such first ...
