Hello I have the following table data(posed in the CODE sec.  

wondering how to get the row data with the min date from each OPID.  If the 2nd Window date is less than 1st Window date then the 2nd Window should be read.    

get the min date goes something like...
Select distinct min DATE, OPID, Window
from TABLE

But the problem is if the 2nd window is the lesser date of the windows.
Accnt	OPID	DATE	Window 
34	1	9/22/11 12:32 PM	1st WINDOW
34	1	9/22/11 12:33 PM	2nd WINDOW
12	2	9/21/11 11:02 AM	1st WINDOW
12	2	9/21/11 11:01 AM	2nd Window
455	1	9/22/11 1:09pm	1st WINDOW

Open in new window

then you should partition by day & opid

easy way is to get date part

select floor(cast(GETDATE() as float))

select * from (
select *, row_number() over (partition by opid,  floor(cast([DATE] as float)) order by [DATE]) rn
from myTable ) x
where rn=1

or use CONVERT(varchar, getdate(), 101) -- to get rid of time part and group by date only like : 09/23/2011

select * from (
select *, row_number() over (partition by opid, CONVERT(varchar, getdate(), 101) order by [DATE]) rn
from myTable ) x
where rn=1
