I was given a bunch of data in Access and am putting it in SQL 2005 for an ASP.NET web app.
Tryingto do a query to select only records where the current date is after the "postDate" field and on or before the "expireDate" field. WHERE (postDate <= CURRENT_TIMESTAMP) AND (expireDate >= CURRENT_TIMESTAMP)
I'm getting no records returned even though there are some records that qualify. Tried using CURDATE() and NOW(), no difference. At this point I think it may be because the dates are not in the correct format. The columns were originally "Date/Time" format in Access and when I imported them into SQL using the DTSWizard, the datatype for those columns became "smalldatetime." Dates are in the format M/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS. I'm guessing the query won't work because SQL is expecting YYYY-MM-DD.
How do I fix this? Been spending a depressing amount of time running in circles with this.
