Something like this?


select *
from YourTable
where Time_Open > dateadd(month, datediff(month, 0, GETDATE()) - 4, 0)
and Time_Open < dateadd(month, datediff(month, 0, GETDATE()) - 1, 0)



--edit--

Fixed a couple typos.

Thanks.


Do you understand how the formulas work?

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

You'd want to use getdate() to find the current day and date and use that in a formula with dateadd.

Welcome aboard. Do you have any code to support your suggestion or is Sean's good enough?

Off the top of my head, no - I wanted to post yesterday in the noobs' section to get a post on the board. I've used things I've learned on this forum a lot over the years, and only yesterday I realized after trying to log in on a whim (with credentials I use on other forums) that I have had an account here since 2008.

I'll be better about posting code bits here and there from this point forward.

Such a simple question, but it made me think... There has to be a way to do this via date_sub, or datediff isn't there? I'll work on it, fun/valuable puzzle for me...

Would something like this work? I wrote it in "notepad" so not sure if syntax is correct...

SELECT *
FROM Table
WHERE Time_Open <= GETDATE()
AND Time_Open >= DATE_SUB(MONTH, DATEDIFF(MONTH, 0, GETDATE()) - 3, 0)

It might be correct for MySQL but DATE_SUB is not a valid function in sql server. I suspect it will work just like sql server. This will get you EXACTLY 3 months ago, including the timestamp. That means that when you posted this on January 22 it would not return any data from October before the 22nd. This is why you have to do a couple of additional steps like I did so you start at the beginning of the month from 3 months ago.
