Help with between statement in a select

I have a table with a list of dates and hours associated with those dates. I want to produce a report that sums the hours for a month. I want to change all the dates for a month to the same date for a group by statement. How can I accomplish this?

One way is to use:
select year(datecol), month(datecol), sum(hourcol)
from tbl
group by year(datecol), month(datecol)

Open in new window

or
select yr, mt, sum(hourcol)
from (
  select yr=year(datecol), mt=month(datecol), *
  from tbl
) grptbl
group by yr, mt

Open in new window
