T-SQL: problem comparing datetime

Last Modified: 2021-04-21
I want to include records from the last one year but have trouble casting the date...

WHERE Cast(sfl.[DateOfException] as date) > DATEDIFF(year, -1, GETDATE())

What is wrong with this syntax?

I get "Operand type clash: date is incompatible with int"
