sql server query to determine if requested date and time are OK

Posted on 2013-01-22
Last Modified: 2013-01-22

I have a query which does not works:-

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[stp_validate_DT_Requested]
      -- Add the parameters for the stored procedure here
      @DT_Requested as Date,
@Firsttime as Time,
 @Lasttime as Time
SET Dateformat YMD
if @DT_Requested >= GETdate() and @Firsttime <= @Lasttime

    SELECT '1' AS IsValid
    SELECT '0' AS IsValid

What i expect that it will do is to check if a requested date is bigger or the same as the current date and that the requested endtime is later then the start time. An agenda check.

What is wrong?
thanks for your help!

I see nothing "wrong" ...
please clarify how you call the procedure, and what you get as output, and what you expect as output.
maybe you get an error?
please clarify

GetDate() returns also the time

This is what i'm entering when executing the query from studio:-

EXEC      @return_value = [dbo].[stp_validate_DT_Requested]
            @DT_Requested = '2013/01/22',
            @Firsttime = '09:00',
            @Lasttime = '10:00'

SELECT      'Return Value' = @return_value

I think that the return value should be a 1, because dtrequested is the current date.
and the lasttime is bigger then the first time ....

Do this query to know what you are comparing with

select getdate(),CONVERT(datetime,'2013/01/22')

ok, so that is the reason why mydate is smaller ....
now we must get rid of the timepart of getdate. How to do that?
