How is this not better?

Select day(dateadd(mm,DateDiff(mm, -1, getdate()),0) -1)

My personal favourite

SELECT
DATEPART(dd, DATEADD(dd, DATEPART(dd, DATEADD(mm, 1, @day)) * -1, DATEADD(mm, 1, @day)))



I suspect you would be hard pressed to notice the difference between any of the above, though the Client Statistics suggests the CASE solution is the most efficient

DECLARE @dtDate DATETIME

SET @dtDate = '2011/02/28'
SELECT @dtDate= dateadd(mm,datediff(mm,0,@dtDate),0)
SELECT datediff(dd,@dtDate,dateadd(mm,1,@dtDate))

How about this?

RETURN DAY(DATEADD(d,-1,DATEADD(mm,DATEDIFF(m,0,@day)+1,0)))

Here is some psuedo code for a correct leap year test calculation.

if year modulo 400 is 0
then is_leap_year
else if year modulo 100 is 0
then not_leap_year
else if year modulo 4 is 0
then is_leap_year
else
not_leap_year

Since this, and other date checking code, is built into the TSQL Date functions I recomend using the examples that have already been posted.

Well, since everyone else likes to do subtractions, I thought I'd contribute an addition only solution :-D (if you don't count DATEDIFF as subtraction :-))

SELECT DATEDIFF(dd,@testdate,(DATEADD(m,1,@testdate)))

Of course, if you use a calendars table you never have to worry about having to code or validate any date calculations ever again. :-P Sure makes life a lot simpler. Here is how I would get that answer:


SELECT d.DaysInCalendarMonth
FROM dbo.dwCalendars d
WHERE d.CalendarDate = @SomeDate
