    Query - with date in where clause

    Hi,t

    I'm trying to run a query to return values from the 10th of last month to the 9th of this month, whenever it is ran. I tried add_months but it is giving me records from a month ago e.g.

    select name,dept,age
    from mytable
    where hire_date >= add_months(sysdate,-1)

    I need the query to return value from 10th of last month to 9th of this month no matter when it is ran.

    Thanks

    4 from dual

    You should try:

    select last_day(add_months(sysdate,-2))+10,last_day(add_months(sysdate,-1))+9 from dual;

    Thx for your suggestions guys. What I'm really trying to do is to allow my query to get values between 10th of last month and 9th of this month whenever the query is ran. It is not just simply select those dates.

    Anyway thanks

    select name,dept,age
    from mytable
    where hire_date between add_months(trunc(sysdate,'MONTH'),-1)+9 and
    add_months(trunc(sysdate,'MONTH'),0)+8
    ;

    Thanks Romeo, I was able to use to achieve the task by specifying the mon/year at run time

    e.g. @c:\mytest2.sql mar/2004

    with the where clase below:

    between add_months(to_date('16/&1','dd/mon/yyyy'),-1) and
    add_months(to_date('16/&1','dd/mon/yyyy'),+0)-1

    -- &1 will be mar/2004

    Thanks a lot
