I wanted to daily run a query that has yesterday's date. In other words, I want to have one day less than the current date which is in the yyyymmdd format.

I got as far as writing DATEADD(day, -1, GETDATE()) but this gives the date as well as the time. How can I remove the time and end up having the date in the yyyymmdd format.
