Hi,
Guys i am really new to SQL Server.Here is my problem i am trying to create a view to get just today's data from a table that has a 'tEndtime' Column that has the value in this format for example:7/29/2008 5:31:21 PM ; Is there a way to just extract just the date from the 'tEndtime' Column and to use a where clause to just dispaly today's data...whatever today is.Thanks

Assuming tEndTime is DATETIME or SMALLDATETIME, try this
SELECT	*
FROM	Table1
WHERE	tEndtime >= DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, '19000101', GETDATE()), '19000101')
	AND tEndtime < DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, '18991231', GETDATE()), '19000101')

See what this returns

SELECT
tEndtime = DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, '19000101', GETDATE()), '19000101'),
tEndtime = DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, '18991231', GETDATE()), '19000101')

Same thing.
SELECT	*
FROM	Table1
WHERE	tEndtime >= DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, '19000101', GETDATE()), '19000101 07:00')
	AND tEndtime < DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, '19000101', GETDATE()), '19000101 23:30')
