statement does month of a date fall between....

I have a hire date field-

Need a simple sql statement to select month(hiredate) from employeeinfo where month(hiredate) between month(getdate()) and dateadd(m,3,getdate())

Trying to get all hiredates where the hiredate month falls in between now and 3 months from now.

What would be the correct statement?

You need to use IN instead of BETWEEN:


SELECT ...
FROM dbo.employeeinfo ei
WHERE
    MONTH(ei.hiredate) IN (
        SELECT MONTH(DATEADD(MONTH, 0, GETDATE())) UNION ALL
        SELECT MONTH(DATEADD(MONTH, 1, GETDATE())) UNION ALL
        SELECT MONTH(DATEADD(MONTH, 2, GETDATE()))
    )

So, what does the query you provided give you?
select month(hiredate) from employeeinfo 
where month(hiredate) between month(getdate()) and dateadd(m,3,getdate())

Open in new window


That assumes, of course, that your employeeinfo table lists the hire dates 3 months into the future.  Are these anticipated hire dates?

I assume you want the past 3 months

select month(hiredate) from employeeinfo 
where month(hiredate) between month(getdate()) and dateadd(m,-3,getdate())

Ex Hire date 1/14/2010 John smith
hire date 2/1/2008 Joe Smith

Dec-
nobody
Jan-
John Smith
Feb-
Joe Smith

Yes-  Field is hiredate-

So I need a sql statement that selects those individuals who's hire date is from now through Feb
(Dec, Jan and Feb)

something like this:

SELECT EmployeeName + ' ' + [Last Name] as Fullname, HireDate FROM EmployeeInformation
 where DateName(month, Hiredate) >= DateName(Month,month(getdate())) and DateName(month, Hiredate) <= DateName(month, dateadd(m,3,getdate()))
 
 
 order by MONTH(hiredate)

but this is not the correct statement as there are March, June, July records that are included when I execute this
