    sql query for current day time

    hi,
    i need to write a SQL query to retrieve current day records.

    Dates stored in my database are in following format:
    "m/d/yyyy hh:mm:ss PM"

    now when i make a query using getdate() the format i get is
    September 19, 2004 4:00 pm

    now this format dosen't match my format. what is the solution for this?

    Try something like this (untested, assumes dates are stored as DATETIME columns or something similar):

    SELECT * FROM `table` WHERE DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 1 DAY) < `date_column`;

    I use the european date format (dd/mm/yyyy) however one of my web servers is setup to use US format (mm/dd/yyyy).

    If your script is ASP use the following in your top include file perhaps (or just the top of your page?):

    <%
    Session.LCID = 2057
    %>

    This will allow you to make SQL querys with ASP in a european format (which I assume is what you was using?).

    Hope this helps

    I'm afraid I don't quite understand. Can you clarify what you want to do, please.
