I have a datetime column with a value of 2011-03-03 00:00:00.000

I really don't kow why I could get one row from:
select * from myView where myView.[myDate] = '2011-03-03'

but I can't get anything from:
select * from myView where myView.[myDate] like '%2011-03-03%'

Very appreciated!!!

Do it like this instead

select *
from myView
where myView.[myDate] BETWEEN '2011-03-03'  AND DATEADD(DD, 1, '2011-03-03')
