Looking for SQL to create dynamic dates, so that it always pulls from December 1 of prior year to the current date.

Example (if run today):
Select * from my_table where my_date between '12/1/2010' and '3/24/2011'

Need this part to be dynamic: '12/1/2010' and '3/24/2011'

note the "between" will exclude all data for today unless my_date is for midnight  00:00:00


if you want to include today, try one of these clauses instead

my_date between add_months(trunc(sysdate,'yyyy') ,-1) and trunc(sysdate)+1 - 1/86400


or

my_date >=  add_months(trunc(sysdate,'yyyy') ,-1) and my_date < trunc(sysdate)+1
