I am trying to do a query by datetime

basically says, select all data by this day.
the problem I am having is that if I put in a day like 2010-03-05
it pulls an empty value because there is a timestamp.

all I want to do is pull data by that entire day.

input is appreciated

query is below
Select * FROM  IncidentReport INNER JOIN
               HowCertain ON IncidentReport.HowCertainID = HowCertain.HowCertainID INNER JOIN
               Locations ON IncidentReport.LocationsID = Locations.LocationsID INNER JOIN
               Perpetrators ON IncidentReport.PerpetratorsID = Perpetrators.PerpetratorsID INNER JOIN
               Tactics ON IncidentReport.TacticsID = Tactics.TacticsID
WHERE (IncidentReport.TimeOccured LIKE @TimeOccured)
ORDER BY IncidentReport.TimeOccured DESC

use between and add time to your upper date limit
declare @Start datetime, @End datetime
set @Start = '03/05/2010'
set @End = '03/05/2010 23:59:59'

Select * FROM  IncidentReport INNER JOIN
               HowCertain ON IncidentReport.HowCertainID = HowCertain.HowCertainID INNER JOIN
               Locations ON IncidentReport.LocationsID = Locations.LocationsID INNER JOIN
               Perpetrators ON IncidentReport.PerpetratorsID = Perpetrators.PerpetratorsID INNER JOIN
               Tactics ON IncidentReport.TacticsID = Tactics.TacticsID
WHERE (IncidentReport.TimeOccured BETWEEN @Start and @End)
ORDER BY IncidentReport.TimeOccured DESC

If you are wroking on SQL Server 2008, you can try like this.
SELECT * 
  FROM IncidentReport 
       INNER JOIN HowCertain 
         ON IncidentReport.HowCertainID = HowCertain.HowCertainID 
       INNER JOIN Locations 
         ON IncidentReport.LocationsID = Locations.LocationsID 
       INNER JOIN Perpetrators 
         ON IncidentReport.PerpetratorsID = Perpetrators.PerpetratorsID 
       INNER JOIN Tactics 
         ON IncidentReport.TacticsID = Tactics.TacticsID 
 WHERE CONVERT(DATE, IncidentReport.TimeOccured) = CONVERT(DATE, @TimeOccured) 
 ORDER BY IncidentReport.TimeOccured DESC 

Open in new window

If 2005 or less, you can try this.
SELECT * 
  FROM IncidentReport 
       INNER JOIN HowCertain 
         ON IncidentReport.HowCertainID = HowCertain.HowCertainID 
       INNER JOIN Locations 
         ON IncidentReport.LocationsID = Locations.LocationsID 
       INNER JOIN Perpetrators 
         ON IncidentReport.PerpetratorsID = Perpetrators.PerpetratorsID 
       INNER JOIN Tactics 
         ON IncidentReport.TacticsID = Tactics.TacticsID 
 WHERE DATEADD(dd, 0, DATEDIFF(DD, 0, IncidentReport.TimeOccured)) = 
       DATEADD(dd, 0, DATEDIFF(DD, 0, @TimeOccured)) 
 ORDER BY IncidentReport.TimeOccured DESC

Or if you want to do it more dynamically
declare @Start datetime, @End datetime
set @Start = dateadd(d, 0, datediff(d, 0, @TimeOccured))
set @End = dateadd(d, 1, @Start)

Select * FROM  IncidentReport INNER JOIN
               HowCertain ON IncidentReport.HowCertainID = HowCertain.HowCertainID INNER JOIN
               Locations ON IncidentReport.LocationsID = Locations.LocationsID INNER JOIN
               Perpetrators ON IncidentReport.PerpetratorsID = Perpetrators.PerpetratorsID INNER JOIN
               Tactics ON IncidentReport.TacticsID = Tactics.TacticsID
WHERE (IncidentReport.TimeOccured BETWEEN @Start and @End)
ORDER BY IncidentReport.TimeOccured DESC

so like this

although my syntax is wrong here
set @End = @TimeOccured + " 23:59:59"





Create Procedure GetIncidentByDate

@TimeOccured datetime

As

declare @Start datetime, @End datetime
set @Start = @TimeOccured
set @End = @TimeOccured + " 23:59:59"

SELECT *
FROM  IncidentReport INNER JOIN
               HowCertain ON IncidentReport.HowCertainID = HowCertain.HowCertainID INNER JOIN
               Locations ON IncidentReport.LocationsID = Locations.LocationsID INNER JOIN
               Perpetrators ON IncidentReport.PerpetratorsID = Perpetrators.PerpetratorsID INNER JOIN
               Tactics ON IncidentReport.TacticsID = Tactics.TacticsID
WHERE (IncidentReport.TimeOccured BETWEEN @Start and @End)
ORDER BY IncidentReport.TimeOccured DESC

Go

Do it like this
Create Procedure GetIncidentByDate

@TimeOccured datetime

As

declare @Start datetime, @End datetime
set @Start = dateadd(d, 0, datediff(d, 0, @TimeOccured))
set @End = dateadd(d, 1, @Start)

SELECT *
FROM  IncidentReport INNER JOIN
               HowCertain ON IncidentReport.HowCertainID = HowCertain.HowCertainID INNER JOIN

Did you try my queries? You don't need extra variables again.
