SQL 2005 need help with Time & Date

Via MS SQL Server 2005

Hello everyone, I have a table that has a logdate column in this format 2012-04-13 07:42:59.387.
How would I select everything within only the current hour?

Reason is I am going to have a page that will refresh itself every minute and use this data to show the user what is going on in the current hour.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

The query returns all entries within the last one hour.  If you need the records on the current hour only the query would be:


where logdate between dateadd(hour, datepart(hour, getdate()), cast(cast(getdate() as date) as datetime)) and getdate()

Hello wsosanjos, I think all records on the current hour is what I am looking for. I tried your suggestion and got the following error.

Type date is not a defined system type.

wdosanjosCommented:
That means you are on SQL 2005.  date was introduced with SQL 2008.

Please try: (actually a simpler solution)
where logdate between dateadd(hour, datediff(hour,0, getDate()), 0) and getdate()
