What value would show if an employee was working on a given date?  The working field is varchar(1).  Can that be "Y" or "N" only?  I'm going to assume that is the case.

Here is my best answer (guess?) without knowing more:

SELECT emp_code FROM q2employee_work_schedule
WHERE working = 'N' AND date1 = GETDATE()
--this will return the emp_code for all employees who aren't working today

Do you need more info than emp_code?

You could try this, but it could be slow if q2employee_work_schedule is a big table.

SELECT * FROM q2employee_work_schedule
WHERE working = 'N' AND date1 = GETDATE()


Based strictly on the question, I don't think the second table needs to be involved.

in my table I was given the date part and then the time part with just zeros, so when trying to query the table I was not getting any awnser, the way I fixed it was with the following  Query

SELECT * FROM q2employee_work_schedule
WHERE working = 'N' AND date1 = CAST(FLOOR(CAST(getdate() as FLOAT)) as DATETIME)
