i assume maxendDate is string so i used DateTime.Parse().
if it's DateTime then use lookup.createdate < maxendDate.AddHours(-1).
var maxCreatedDate = (from lookup in Ecommerce.dbo.EcomRegisterOpenCloseLookup 
where lookup.EcomTransactionTypeID = 9 and lookup.createdate < DateTime.Parse(maxendDate.ToString()).AddHours(-1)).Max();

Thanks.

I am getting error:

LINQ to Entities does not recognize the method 'System.DateTime AddHours(Double)' method, and this method cannot be translated into a store expression.

-------------------------------------

 private DateTime GetStartDate(DateTime endDate)
        {
           var getStartDate = (from ecom in _ecommerceDataConnection.EcomRegisterOpenCloseLookups
                                where ecom.EcomTransactionTypeID == 9 &&
                                ecom.CreateDate < DateTime.Parse(endDate.ToString()).AddHours(-1)
                                select (ecom.CreateDate)).Max();

           return getStartDate;

        }

--------------------------------



any idea?


Thanks

change this to:
 private DateTime GetStartDate(DateTime endDate)
        {
           var getStartDate = (from ecom in _ecommerceDataConnection.EcomRegisterOpenCloseLookups
                                where ecom.EcomTransactionTypeID == 9 &&
                                ecom.CreateDate < EntityFunctions.AddHours(endDate, -1).Value
                                select (ecom.CreateDate)).Max(); 

           return getStartDate;

        }

I tried something like this:

var getStartDate = (from ecom in _ecommerceDataConnection.EcomRegisterOpenCloseLookups
                                where ecom.EcomTransactionTypeID == 9 &&
                                ecom.CreateDate < endDate.AddHours(Convert.ToDouble(-1))
                                select (ecom.CreateDate)).Max();

still the same error...

LINQ to Entities does not recognize the method 'System.DateTime AddHours(Double)' method, and this method cannot be translated into a store expression.
