Date problem

Date problem

Date problem

(OP)
I have a table with an ID, a qty, and a date (datetime) in sql 7.  I want to query the database and retrieve all recs grouped by a given month. So rather than saying give me all recs = xx/xx/xxxx, I want to say give me all recs = 10 (or oct).  Is this possible and if so how.

Cheers,

Ray.

RE: Date problem

Try this:

select ID, qty, date
from MyTable
where DatePart(month,Date)=10


You probably want to go by month and year, so you may want to try:

select ID, qty, date
from MyTable
where DatePart(month,Date)=10 and DatePart(year,Date)=1999


Let me know if this works.....

Thanks Darkman it works like a dream.
