Hi all.

I have a SQL Server 2008 query as follows:

SELECT     Expired, ExpirationDate
FROM         myTable
WHERE     (ExpirationDate < { fn NOW() })

Open in new window


The problem is, if the expiration date is 2014-03-04 it appears in the results when compared to today. The ExpirationDate field is a date Data Type. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to format NOW()?

Thank you in advance.
