SQL help to gather expression for Today() on a report

I am working on a report and I need to add a calculated field for today date.

I added a new field to the dataset named Today where I want to set an expression to capture the current date. When I preview the report the value shows up blank.

Anyone can shed some light on it. Thanks in advance.

Set it's default to GETDATE()

Or rather it may well ne Now() or Date() for SSRS.

Hi Kelvin,

When I do that I get error, 'GETDATE' is not declared. It may be inaccessible due to its protection level.

If I use Date I get error, Date is a type and cannot be used as an expression.

When I used Now() it returned nothing...

You can get at TODAY(), by going through the builtin functions/Datetime
