Your field has both date and time? But you want to filter on date only, correct? Try:
SELECT * FROM TABLE A
WHERE DATE(A.DATA)=CURRENT_DATE

Is TABLE the name of your table? TABLE is a reserved word so you should back tick it if you are using it as a name

The current date is returned by the function NOW()

To ensure you are comparing only the Date parts of potential date/time fields use the DATE() function to only return the date elements.

SELECT * FROM `TABLE` A WHERE DATE(A.date) = DATE(NOW());
