I'm using sql server 2008.

I have a table that looks like this:

This is the script for the table

SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[EmployeesTable](

I want to filter by the BirthDate column.

So in my where clause I want to search by the month number.
So for example if I set my month parameter to 7 , I want to look at the BirthDate column and only return the records with a birthdate in july. So if you look at my table that would only be Michael Suyama.

Anyone know the syntax to look through a datetime column and filter by the month number?




@month = 7

SELECT *  FROM [EmployeesTable]
WHERE [BirthDate] = @month
