I used dateadd(d,-180,GETDATE())  which pulls wrong date.

SELECT  dateadd(d,-180,GETDATE())
--2012-07-07 14:36:21.380


select * from Table1
Where startdate>= 180 days from Today.

Roughly from June month onwards ??

The date shown is correct.

July through December is 6 months - roughly 180 days.

Today is January 3rd.  Allowing for 365 days in a year, 7th of July is about 180 days ago.

If you want from the start of June onwards, you're talking 210 days give or take (216 days if you want to be accurate and starting from today).
