Hey Everyone,

I am trying to generate a @StartDate and @EndDate. The @StartDate would be the 1st of January and the year is dependent on the @EndDate. The @EndDate would be
select max(DateValue) from dbo.testtable

The column DateValue in the testtable contains dates such as 2013-12-09, 2013-12-15.

What I am trying to accomplish is if the @EndDate is populated by select max(DateValue) from dbo.testtable returns '2013-12-15' as the max(DateValue). I want the @StartDate to '2013-01-01' because the year of the EndDate is 2013.

So something along the lines of
@StartDate = DateAdd(yy,?,@EndDate)

Any suggestions?

@StartDate = DATEADD(YEAR, DATEDIFF(YEAR, 0, @EndDate), 0)

Time is always against us
