Hello,
I am trying to build a report that needs to query records between Jan01 of last year through yesterdays date, last year. In other words, for today (9/15/2010) I would need 1/1/2009-9/14/2010. I am using the following for my EndDate
=DateAdd("y", -1, (Dateadd("d", -1, Today)))

It keeps pulling records from both years.
Any help for this Newbie would be appreciated.

1. Change "Today" to "GetDate()".
2. In your example, you want the date range to end on 9/14/2010. I assume this is a typo, and should be 9/14/2009?

You should use
select dateadd(yy,-1,dateadd(d,-1,getdate()))

Agreed... now all you need to do is to provide the other needed date. ;-)

I've got the sneaky feeling that this is going to be for an SSRS report which would explain "Today" I think...

Anyway, I agree... the op needs to clarify what the date range should actually be.

My apologies and thanks for the help. It is for SSRS. The date range should have been described as January 1st of last year (1/1/2009) through yesterdays month/day/lastyear. This would be for a report parameter EndDate.
