Hi all,
I am looking to get the date part only of a field in sql without the time, for example I have a field named DateSent and it actually stores date and time, now I want to see all records who DateSent was today or in the last two days, how do I accomplish that?

from MyTable T
where T.DateSent >= convert(datetime, convert(varchar(11), dateadd(day, -2, getdate()), 113), 113)

Just change the number of days you subtract...

declare @NumDays int

set @NumDays = 2

-- Shows 2 full days + today
select *
from MyTable T
where T.DateSent >= convert(datetime, convert(varchar(11), dateadd(day, -1*@NumDays, getdate()), 113), 113)

set @NumDays = 0

-- Shows today
select *
from MyTable T
where T.DateSent >= convert(datetime, convert(varchar(11), dateadd(day, -1*@NumDays, getdate()), 113), 113)

well, I am posting here the sql I have in access and the equivalent sql you're suggesting in sql, and I get completely different results.

Access
SELECT EmployeesEmailMessages.EmployeeID, Count(EmployeesEmailMessages.ID) AS CountOfID
FROM EmployeesEmailMessages INNER JOIN EmailMessagesTbl ON EmployeesEmailMessages.EmailMessagesID = EmailMessagesTbl.ID
WHERE (((EmailMessagesTbl.DateCreated)>=Date()))
GROUP BY EmployeesEmailMessages.EmployeeID
HAVING (((Count(EmployeesEmailMessages.ID))>1));

Open in new window


sql
SELECT     dbo.EmployeesEmailMessages.EmployeeID
                            FROM          dbo.EmployeesEmailMessages INNER JOIN
                                                   dbo.EmailMessagesTbl ON dbo.EmployeesEmailMessages.EmailMessagesID = dbo.EmailMessagesTbl.ID
                            WHERE      (dbo.EmailMessagesTbl.DateCreated >= convert(datetime, convert(varchar(11), dateadd(day, -1, getdate()), 113), 113) 
)
                            GROUP BY dbo.EmployeesEmailMessages.EmployeeID
                            HAVING      (COUNT(dbo.EmployeesEmailMessages.ID) > 1)
