The field is a datetime fieldexample "2010-09-13 15:27:30.327"

How do I query on the datetime field when I am passing a date like "09/13/2010"

SELECT * FROM YourTable WHERE DATEADD(day, 0, DATEDIFF(day, 0, dateField)) = '9/13/2010'

but I strongly recommend using unambiguous date format:

SELECT * FROM YourTable WHERE DATEADD(day, 0, DATEDIFF(day, 0, dateField)) = '20100913'

and datecol < dateadd(day,1,convert(datetime,'09/13/2010',101))


No, you're never too old to Yak'n'Roll if you're too young to die.
