myDateField>=dateadd(day,-2,GETDATE())

will look for any dates which are up to two days ago. So today is Wednesday 5 p.m., so it will look from Monday 5 p.m.

If you wanted to look from Tuesday (so the two days are Tuesday and Wednesday) from midnight, then

myDateField>=dateadd(day,0,datediff(day,0,dateadd(day,-1,GETDATE())))

will do that.

There are shortcuts in SQL Server 2012 and 2014, but the above should work in 2008.

where CONVERT(varchar(10), dt,101) >= CONVERT(varchar(10), (GETDATE()-2),101)
