Classic ASP date query question

Hi,

I have a query to display simple information on an classic ASP page. What I need is the part it filters the "emp_term_date" to be greater than today's date. I want the system to automatically grab today's date and replace the '6/11/2015' in the query. Here is my query:

Select
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.id,
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.staff,
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.stu,
  Trim(informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.fullname) As fullname,
  Trim(informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.email) As email,
  Trim(informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.lname) As lname,
  Trim(informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.fname) As fname,
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.rec_type,
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.emp_term_date
From
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec
Where
  (informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.rec_type <> 'P' And
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.emp_term_date Is Null) Or
  (informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.emp_term_date > '1/11/2015'   )
Order By
  lname

use the getdate() function:

Select
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.id,
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.staff,
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.stu,
  Trim(informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.fullname) As fullname,
  Trim(informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.email) As email,
  Trim(informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.lname) As lname,
  Trim(informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.fname) As fname,
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.rec_type,
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.emp_term_date
From
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec
Where
  (informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.rec_type <> 'P' And
  informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.emp_term_date Is Null) Or
  (informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.emp_term_date > getdate()   )

i was assuming Sql Server. for Informix, use the keyword current:

(informix.sfu_localdirect_rec.emp_term_date > current   )

If I use '6/11/2015' then it works. It seems converting date to string might work?
