I have been given the solution by e/e to select 12 month appointments from my appointments table

Select * from TBLAppointments
where AppointmentDate > dateadd(m,-12,getdate())

this is good but if i run it it gives me all appointments from today 14/03/2012 back to 14/03/2011, how can i tweak it so it gives me data back from today to 01/03/2011...i need the full previous month also?

With same functions you know.  Datepart to get the day and then dataadd to subtract that number of days from the date, that is   14/03 -> not minus 14 but 13 :)

But with getdate you always have a timestamp.  Like this you get rid of it

CONVERT(datetime ,
               , (CAST(YEAR(dateadd(m,-12,getdate())) AS VARCHAR(4)) +
                  CAST(MONTH(dateadd(m,-12,getdate())) AS VARCHAR(2)) + '01' )

Select * from TBLAppointments
where AppointmentDate > dateadd(m,-12,getdate())
or (month(appointmentdate) = month(getdate()) and year(appointmentdate = year(getdate()) - 1)
