If you mean, "today if 5 Jan, so give me all of 3 Jan and 4 Jan"...


DECLARE @start datetime, @end datetime
SET @start = DATEADD(day, DATEDIFF(day, '1900-01-01', GETDATE()) - 2, '1900-01-01')
SET @end = DATEADD(day, DATEDIFF(day, '1900-01-01', GETDATE()), '1900-01-01')

SELECT *
FROM SomeTable
WHERE DateColumn >= @start AND DateColumn < @end

Or staying in same datatype but getting rid off the timestamp from GETDATE()


DECLARE @today as DATETIME
SET @todaty = CAST(FLOOR( CAST( GETDATE() AS FLOAT ) ) AS DATETIME)

select * from dbo.yourtable
where yourdate >= @today - 2 
and yourdate < [u][/u]@today
