Need to select records based on todays date

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I need to select records in my database based on todays date. I have a date field that saves a future scheduled ship date for orders and need to use a select statement that would use todays date as a parameter. I am able to do this by manualy entering the date in the select statement but when I use todays date with inline code in the select statement it does not work. Please look at the code segment below:

Dim strTodaysDate As String
strTodaysDate = "'" + Date.Now.AddDays(9).ToString("MM/dd/yyyy") + "'"

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:DAVINCIORDERTRACKINGConnectionString %>"
        SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [OrderTracker] WHERE (CONVERT(char(10), ScheduledShipDate, 101) <> '<% =strTodaysDate %>')">


The segment above returns all records. And if I just enter the date manually in the select statement like below it returns the correct records:

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:DAVINCIORDERTRACKINGConnectionString %>"

return records based on current date?


I tried finding a QA which already addressed this idea, but with no luck. Sorry if it's been addressed before.


I have a table where sales pricing is managed; it contains history of pricing where every price record has an 'effective date'. Currently when a user needs the 'active' price for a customer/item combination, the table is queried by the record that has the most recent 'EffectiveDate' before GETDATE(). Here is the def for table 'tim_PriceSheet'

ItemKey int, not null

EffectiveDate datetime, notnull

CurrID varchar(3)

ListPrice decimal (15,5)

The primary key is set on ItemKey, EffectiveDate

Sample Data:


ItemKey	EffectiveDate	    CurrID	ListPrice
45	2010-07-01 00:00:00.000	CAD	100.00000
45	2010-09-14 00:00:00.000	CAD	110.00000
45	2010-10-01 00:00:00.000	CAD	112.00000
63	2010-09-01 00:00:00.000	CAD	45.00000
63	2010-09-01 00:00:00.000	USD	45.00000
63	2010-09-18 00:00:00.000	CAD	40.00000
63	2010-10-01 00:00:00.000	USD	40.00000
63	2010-10-15 00:00:00.000	CAD	41.00000
63	2010-10-21 00:00:00.000	USD	41.00000

My challenge is this:

I want to return a record set which shows the current price for each distinct item and currency code; in the example below the result would be based on the date being September 16, 2010

Not sure of the correct logic to return records based on date in my WHERE clause


I have a table that contains records with a start and end date.. within our application we have another table that contains a retention number.. its a number 1 thru 100 or -1 indicating retain forever.

Now i need to pull back all records that are in the table that have a deviceID = 231 and that have a startdate < the retention period.. So what i was expecting was records that have a startdate less than the retention time from todays date..

I have the following 2 queries that return the same results.. and not really sure which logic would be correct.. for this example, there are 15 records for that ID.. and 2 of which are older than 20days ago. So which logic should i use?

DECLARE @retention_time int
DECLARE @id bigint

SET @retention_time = '20'
SET @id = '231'

SELECT * FROM DeviceInfo WHERE Id = @id AND DATEDIFF(day, startDate,GETDATE()) > @retention_time
SELECT * FROM DeviceInfo WHERE Id = @id AND startDate < (GETDATE() - @retention_time)

dropdownbox which selects records based on criteria (TODAY, THIS WEEK, THIS MONTH, etc)


I have a dropdownbox which I want to use to search records based on a timescale. The gridview populates results based from that search.

So here is how I want to work this;

If a user selects "today" - a list of records input today are populated. If "this week" is selected, a list of all records added within that week from todays date is populated.

I created a forum on this issue previously but to no avail whatsoever. How do I work around this problem?

Help would be much appreciated

On New Item form, select item on choice dropdown based on query result.


I posted this on Experts Exchange awhile back with no answer, so here's hoping someone here has an idea :)

So I've mostly figured this problem out, but I need some help in getting over the hump... note that I'm using JavaScript to do this (SPServices) on SharePoint 07'.

I'm on the New Items page of a list. Based on a user's selection in a "Teacher" dropdown, I'm doing the following:

1.) Get the value of the Teacher field and several other fields (School and Visit Date)
2.) Run a CAML query based on those fields to find the last list item entered for that Teacher

So here's where I'm stuck...

I have 10 choice fields, all with choices 0, 4, 7, and 10. Depending on what they were set to in the last entered item (which I queried), I want to set the selected item on each of those dropdowns to equal that. So "Score 1" was set to "4" on the la

Filtering/selecting rows based on date


I have a gridview, based on thsi datasource:


<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSourceAllLoads" runat="server" 
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:tplatz_dk_dbConnectionString %>"               
        SelectCommand="SELECT DISTINCT DATEADD(day, 0, DATEDIFF(day, 0, tblDelivered.delivered_Date)) AS delivered_Date, tblDelivered.delivered_LoadNo, tblDelivered.delivered_TrailerNo, ISNULL(tblDeliveredInfo.deliveryInfo_FirmaNavn, N'?') AS Expr1 FROM tblDelivered FULL OUTER JOIN tblDeliveredInfo ON tblDelivered.delivered_LoadNo = tblDeliveredInfo.deliveryInfo_LoadNr ORDER BY delivered_Date DESC">

Using a dropdownlist, I can filter (by changing datasource) the results based on customer names in a dropdownlist. This datasource, working perfectly, looks like this:


<asp:SqlDataSource ID="sqldataSourceKundeLoads" runat="server" 
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:tplatz_dk_dbConnectionString %>" 
        SelectCommand="SELECT  DATEADD(day, 0, DATEDIFF(day, 0, tblDelivered.delivered_Date)) AS delivered_Date, tblDelivered.delivered_LoadNo, tblDelivered.delivered_TrailerNo, ISNULL(tblDeliveredInfo.deliveryInfo_FirmaNavn, N'?&#

select records within 30 days of previous records

I have a table with a list of patient id's and there begin date and end dates as follows: ID     begin_date  end_date 1234 10/09/2009 10/16/2009 1234 12/16/2009 12/22/2009 1234 12/28/2009 12/30/2009 1234 01/13/2010 01/19/2010 1234 04/29/2010 05/05/2010 what i need to do is select the records that have an end_date within 30 days of a begin_date. So in the above example, i would need to get the following records: ID     begin_date   end_date 1234 12/28/2009   12/30/2009 1234 01/13/2010   01/19/2010 Because 12/28/2009 is 30 days within 12/22/2009 (previous end_date) and 01/13/2010 is within 30 days of 12/30/2009 (previous end_date) and 12/22/2009 (2nd previous end_date). is there a good way to do this using T-SQL?

Alert based on date

I have a list of SSL certificates and their expiration dates.  I created a column that calculates the date 45 days before the expiration and then a view that only shows those items where the (expiration - 45) > Today. I then set an alert for any changes to items in that view.  However, I don't get an alert for items that pop into the view...I guess because the item itself did not change.  Is there a way to send an alert based on date?  My SharePoint enviroment is locked down so I can't create custom workflows or connect via Designer.

Export Data to Excel Based on Date Range

I have data from multiple tables that I would like to display in a gridview via a stored procedure.  I need to select the data based on a date range and display it.  Once displayed I need to include a button that would allow the user to export the gridview data to an excel spreadsheet.  Does anyone have an out of the box solution or know of a tutorial I can use to accomplish this feat?  I am currently using 2.0 for this project. I am newish to .net. Thanks in advance. Here is my stored procedure that calls the data from multiple tables.USE [DATABASENAME] GO /****** Object: StoredProcedure [dbo].[GetUsersAll] Script Date: 09/03/2010 08:20:23 ******/ SET ANSI_NULLS ON GO SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON GO ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[GetUsersAll] AS SELECT aspnet_Users.UserName, aspnet_Membership.Email, Team.Name, MemberTeamRole.InsertDate, MemberTeamRole.ManagerApprovedDate, MemberTeamRole.RegistrarApprovedDate, MemberTeamRole.RoleName, MemberInfo.firstname, MemberInfo.lastname FROM aspnet_Membership INNER JOIN aspnet_Users ON aspnet_Membership.UserId = aspnet_Users.UserId INNER JOIN MemberInfo ON aspnet_Users.UserId = MemberInfo.memberid LEFT OUTER JOIN MemberTeamRole ON aspnet_Membership.UserId = MemberTeamRole

Dynamic list item title based on date created & regional settings?

I have a list of things that doesn't *need* a title.  However, because sharepoint uses Title for links, RSS etc  I tried generating a title in an event handler.   This would work great if I wasn't basing it on a date field: public override void ItemAdding(SPItemEventProperties properties) { DateTime dt = Convert.ToDateTime(properties.AfterProperties["TestDate"]); properties.AfterProperties["Title"] = dt.ToShortDateString(); base.ItemAdding(properties); } In testing, this sets the title to "8/9/2010" when I selected 8/10/2010 in the date picker.  I figure this is because of the regional settings of my test user.  I can probably correct the title value for 'test user' but that won't fix 'test user in mongolia' who would still see two different values. So What I would like is to have the Title always display the value MyDate in the uesr's locale.  So the field needs to be dynamic not only at edit/update time, but at display time. Does anybody know if this can be accomplished, and more specifically how?

select distinct best row based on a condition

Hi all . The application I'm working on only allowed that one user had one usergroup. I create a User_UserGroup table to allow a user to have n usergroups. My problem now is the following: User 'ablanco' belongs to UserGroup 'comercial' and 'financeira' If i execute this commands i get the following results: SELECT * FROM [T_APP_ModulePermition] WHERE [UserGroup] = 'comercial' http://img26.imageshack.us/i/49234843.png ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SELECT * FROM [T_APP_ModulePermition] WHERE [UserGroup] = 'financeira' http://img259.imageshack.us/i/32526938.png ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I now need to get distinct rows that belong to ablanco's Usergroups but if on one group the module is Enable=0 and on the other the same module is Enable=1 it should return the ont that has Enable = 1 The attempt i made without taking in consideration this 'Enable' part was the following: SELECT MP.* FROM [T_APP_ModulePermition] MP     INNER JOIN T_APP_UserGroup_Detail UGD ON MP.UserGroup=UGD.UserGroup     INNER JOIN T_APP_User U ON UGD.UserId = U.UserId WHERE U.UserId='ablanco' But since i cant use DISTINCT.* i get all the 14 rows. If someone can help me on this i would be thankful.
