WHERE Date >= getdate()

I have a query where i am trying to get any record were the date is either today or greater than today

This is my query

SELECT * FROM Table
WHERE EndDate >= getdate()

today's date is 2/29/2016 and it is not returning any records that are like this 2016-02-29 00:00:00.0000000

I suspect it is because of the time portion? how do i remove the time out of the equation.

Numerous ways but I use this

SELECT * FROM Table
WHERE EndDate >= cast(convert(nvarchar(10), getdate(), 103) as datetime)

Open in new window


You might need to alter the 103 to 101 depending on your date settings.

You can also use this:

SELECT * FROM Table
WHERE EndDate >= cast(getdate() as date)

Hi coder,

It's probably due to the way things are being recast implicitly.  If you'll explicitly cast the value to the appropriate type you can get past it.

SELECT * FROM Table
WHERE cast (EndDate as date) >= getdate()

  or

SELECT * FROM Table
WHERE EndDate >= cast (getdate() as {date type of EndDate})

If you have a lot of data, the second will be faster as the recast occurs on the static data, not the row data.  However, if the EndDate column is a string in 'mm/dd/yyyy' format you'll need to use the first form as a date string doesn't compare easily unless it's in 'yyyy-mm-dd' format.


Good Luck!

Are you storing future dates in EndDate in your table?

If not, do you want to check this?

SELECT * FROM Table
WHERE EndDate =< getdate()
