ok so I am guessing you use the datediff function but not sure how to get the output i actually want.

I have a variable @mydate I want to see if it is before or on todays date.

Is it something like
if not DATEDIFF(day,getDate(),@mydate) > 1
begin
--then @mydate is a date before today
End

having a hard time testing this, thanks

if @mydate < getdate()
select 'yesterday or before'
else
select 'the future!'

if datediff(day, @mydate, getdate())) > 0
select 'yesterday or before'
else
select 'the future!'
