isn't this a little easier??

CREATE Function GetMonthEnd(@Date DateTime)
Returns DateTime
AS
RETURN dateadd(d,(day(@date)) * -1,@date)
END

Heh... only when you actually make it return the correct answer Wink

--Jeff Moden

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.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

Here is another way to do it:


CREATE Function GetMonthEnd(@Date DateTime)
Returns DateTime
AS
Begin
Return (dateadd(mm, datediff(mm, 0, @Date) + 1, 0) - 1)
End

This is the expression I have been looking for. I have a field called Plan End Date that I need to calculate the end of the month that the Plan End Date is in. How do I write this expression? thank you!

Select
dateadd(mm,datediff(mm,-1,PlanEndDate),-1) as PlanEndOfMonthDate
from
MyTable

Thank you for your quick response! What is the My table you are referring to? After I do this expression, then I need to take the PlanEndOfMonthDate and add 15 months for a final recon date. Final Recon Date: DateAdd("m",15,[MonthEnd]). However, it doesn't always give me the correct date. For example. PlanEndOfMonthDate is 2/29/08, the final recon date is coming out as 5/29/09 but I need it to be the end of May, 5/31/09. Any suggestions how to correct my calculation? thanks Michael!

I tried the following PlanEndOfMonthDate: DateAdd([mm],DateDiff([mm],-1,[PlanEndDate]),-1) and a box comes up for me to enter the month parameter value for mm. How do I get the code to look at the month in the PlanEndDate so parmameter value box is not listed?

MyTable is what ever the table you are pulling the data from. You didn't provide any detailed information so a "generalized" table name was provided for you to base your own query on.

If you would like better answers to your questions I suggest you take the time to read the first article I reference below in my signature block.
