need to populate 2 date variables with a specific date format

can get the required results from a select statement but need to use the same syntax to 'set' the variable

Declare @startDate	DateTime
Declare @endDate	Datetime

select CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), GETDATE(), 120) AS [YYYY-MM-DD] -- this gives the desired output of 2013-07-17 but cant get it to work when setting the variable: Set @startDate = CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), GETDATE(), 120) AS [YYYY-MM-DD] - Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'AS'

Open in new window


also once the @startDate variable is populated need to populate the @endDate variable to add 1 year: Set @endDate = DATEADD(year, 1, @startDate

can you please help with this?
