Need help with running script within certain set parameter X amount of days.

Hello,

I have several dates within a column that I would like to run a script on that will update column based off of the date within the column.

My date looks like this..."2011-06-07 09:02:00" The time doesn't matter so it would be something like...

<cfquery>
UPDATE TABLE
SET columnB = #myNewData#
WHERE LastUpdatedDate = within X amount of days
</cfquery>

I have X date because I want to be able to adjust the days as I need to.

Thx,

Brian

when you say within X number of Days, not sure what "within" means - is that X days more than, less than or either side of the date?  And which date?  Today?  Or a date you supply?


This example is X days before a given date up until that date...
<cfset targetDate = "12/15/2002">
<cfset numbDays = 12">

WHERE LastUpdatedDate between #createODBCdate(dateAdd("d",-numbDays,targetDate))# and #createODBCdate(targetDate)#

would give 12/3 through 12/15

This example is the X number of days before today and any day after that...

WHERE LastUpdatedDate >= #createODBCdate(dateAdd("d",numbDays,getDate()))#
