I have a table of payroll calendar dates which includes biweekly records ranging from 1/1/2010 through 12/31/2020.  The fields are:

Beginning Date
EndingDate
PayDate

I need to store the Beginning and Ending dates to @Beg and @End variables when dateadd(day, -1,getdate()) is greater than or equal to the BeginningDate and Less than or equal to the EndingDate in the record.

I am having trouble writing the query when getdate() = the ending date.

Can someone help?

thank you

Glen

Are you looking for this..

DECLARE @Start AS DATE = dateadd(day, -1,getdate())
DECLARE @End AS DATE = dateadd(day, -1,getdate())

SELECT @Start, @End

The statement needs to select the correct beginning and ending date from the table.  For example, if today is 11/19, then the current payroll based on the table started 11/6/2016 and ends 11/19/16, so those dates would be stored in the 2 variables.

I'm guessing there's a larger requirement then this description, so it might be worth it to step back, collect your thoughts, and then spell out exactly what you are trying to do here.   Preferably with a data mockup.

I have solved this.

Not elegant but it works.

declare @BD datetime,

@EDate datetime,

@PDate datetime

 

 

set @PDate=cast(GETDATE() as DATE)

 

 

 

if OBJECT_ID(N'tempdb..#PPDate') is not null

            Begin

                  drop table #PPDate

            End

      Create table #PPDate(

     

      Metric varchar (30),

     

      BDate Date,

      EDate date

     

      );

 

 

 

 

insert into #PPDate

SELECT  [payroll] as Metric

     

      ,max([begdate]) as BDate

      ,max([enddate]) as EDate

     

  FROM [livedb].[dbo].[tbl_sp_pp_calendar]

  where begdate <=dateadd(day,-1,cast(@PDate as DATE)) and enddate>=dateadd(day,-1,cast(@PDate as DATE))

  group by payroll

 

 

  set @BD=(select BDate

  from #PPDate)

 

  set @EDate=(select EDate

  from #PPDate)
