I have an ADO.NET Source in an SSIS package and want to run a SQL Command to bring back my records and I cant figure out how to write my Where clause where myfield = GetDate() and this does not work. Can someone let me know how I can return all the records where myfield = Today?

Please and Thank you

>Where clause where myfield = GetDate()
GETDATE() is the datetime down to the milisecond (ish), so if you want just today without the time component then use CAST(GETDATE() as date)

or you could write:
(DATEDIFF(d, myfield , GETDATE()) = 0)

btw Since you're using SSIS, it is a common practice to have an Execute SQL Task with SQL of 'SELECT GETDATE() as dt', then assign dt to an SSIS variable.  Then you have that variable to use elsewhere in your SSIS package, with any platform, and in expressions where you have to do things like rename an output file to include the current date.
