Hello,
in my sgl table (Server 2000) is a column with name Lieferscheindatum
it is a datetime 8  like 24.03.2011  for today.

I would like to get the data from my table:
1) for the last 3 days (from the current date)
2) for the current week
3) for the last 3 month

I think I have to use DATEADD but I don´t now how.

???DATEADD(Day,-3,Lieferscheindatum)AS Lieferscheindatum..........???? will not work

500 points with a solution.
Thank you.
Best regards,
Thomas
this query is for the data of the current month and year
this works

nYear  = current year   2011
nMonth = current month  3


sql.Format("SELECT * FROM ViewLieferscheine WHERE \
		   DATEPART(year,Lieferscheindatum)=%d AND\
                     DATEPART(month,Lieferscheindatum)=%d \
                     ORDER BY CAST(LieferscheinNr AS BIGINT)DESC ",nYear,nMonth);

I would try something like:

1. WHERE Lieferscheindatum BETWEEN DATEADD(day, -3, GETDATE()) AND GETDATE()

2. WHERE Lieferscheindatum BETWEEN DATEADD(day, -7, GETDATE()) AND GETDATE()

3. WHERE Lieferscheindatum BETWEEN DATEADD(month, -3, GETDATE()) AND GETDATE()

This will work
SELECT * FROM ViewLieferscheine WHERE Lieferscheindatum >  DATEADD(dd,-3, getdate())

if the getdate() returns an hour you must convert it
like this

where Lieferscheindatum=CONVERT(varchar(12),DATEADD(day,-1,GETDATE()),101)

For last 3 days
1. WHERE Lieferscheindatum BETWEEN DATEADD(day, -3, GETDATE()) AND GETDATE()

for Current week you neeed to find out first and last day of week
use below function to get first day of week, you canchange it as per your requiremnt
create function dbo.F_START_OF_WEEK
(
      @DATE                  datetime,
      -- Sun = 1, Mon = 2, Tue = 3, Wed = 4
      -- Thu = 5, Fri = 6, Sat = 7
      -- Default to Sunday
      @WEEK_START_DAY            int      = 1      
)
/*
Find the fisrt date on or before @DATE that matches
day of week of @WEEK_START_DAY.
*/
returns            datetime
as
begin
declare       @START_OF_WEEK_DATE      datetime
declare       @FIRST_BOW            datetime

-- Check for valid day of week
if @WEEK_START_DAY between 1 and 7
      begin
      -- Find first day on or after 1753/1/1 (-53690)
      -- matching day of week of @WEEK_START_DAY
      -- 1753/1/1 is earliest possible SQL Server date.
      select @FIRST_BOW = convert(datetime,-53690+((@WEEK_START_DAY+5)%7))
      -- Verify beginning of week not before 1753/1/1
      if @DATE >= @FIRST_BOW
            begin
            select @START_OF_WEEK_DATE =
            dateadd(dd,(datediff(dd,@FIRST_BOW,@DATE)/7)*7,@FIRST_BOW)
            end
      end

return @START_OF_WEEK_DATE

end
go
for more info refer

Then once you get first day of week , add 6 or 7 days to it depend on how many days week you consider
and get crrent week data like

cod elike

 WHERE Lieferscheindatum BETWEEN dbo.F_START_OF_WEEK(GETDATE(),1) AND dateadd(dd,6,dbo.F_START_OF_WEEK(GETDATE(),1))


3. For Last 3 months
WHERE Lieferscheindatum BETWEEN DATEADD(month, -3, GETDATE()) AND GETDATE()

Hello,
thanks for the answers.
This will work:
WHERE Lieferscheindatum BETWEEN DATEADD(day, -3, GETDATE()) AND GETDATE()         last 3 days
WHERE Lieferscheindatum BETWEEN DATEADD(month, -3, GETDATE()) AND GETDATE()    last 3 month

I never did a function.
Is there perhaps and easy way.

with DATENAME(weekday, GetDay()) AS..... I will get the current day of the week.
So I want to get all the data of the currrent week.

So if I have the day I just mínus the days like this

weekday = Sunday        = start at Monday so minus 6
weekday = Saturday      = start at Monday so minus 5
weekday = Friday           = start at Monday so minus 4

WHERE Lieferscheindatum BETWEEN DATEADD(day, -6 or -5 or -4 etc, GETDATE()) AND GETDATE()
can you help me with that,
Thank you.
Best regards,
Thomas

Hi there,
I found the solution:

      CTime time=CTime::GetCurrentTime();
       int nGetDayOfWeek =time.GetDayOfWeek();

                //1 = Sonntag
      //2 = Montag
      //3 = Dienstag
      //4 = Mittwoch
      //5 = Donnerstag
      //6 = Freitag
      //7 = Samstag

      int Tage_Minus_Aktuelle_Woche=0;

      if(nGetDayOfWeek==1) Tage_Minus_Aktuelle_Woche=7;
      if(nGetDayOfWeek==2) Tage_Minus_Aktuelle_Woche=1;
      if(nGetDayOfWeek==3) Tage_Minus_Aktuelle_Woche=2;
      if(nGetDayOfWeek==4) Tage_Minus_Aktuelle_Woche=3;
      if(nGetDayOfWeek==5) Tage_Minus_Aktuelle_Woche=4;
      if(nGetDayOfWeek==6) Tage_Minus_Aktuelle_Woche=5;
      if(nGetDayOfWeek==7) Tage_Minus_Aktuelle_Woche=6;


       //aktuelle Woche
            sql.Format("SELECT * FROM ViewLieferscheine WHERE \
                     Lieferscheindatum BETWEEN DATEADD(day,-%d,GETDATE()) AND GETDATE()\
                                 ORDER BY CAST(LieferscheinNr AS BIGINT)DESC ",Tage_Minus_Aktuelle_Woche
