dates: Comparing just the date parts of datetimes

47 New Member
Is there a simple way to subtract the time from a datetime field, so when I compare dates, I'm always comparing the dates at 12:00 am?

I'd really prefer not to convert all my dates to strings.

Thanks,


Dante

You can use 'DateDiff' function which the parameter you want.

I was very surprised to discover that >>> import datetime >>> x = datetime.date(2004, 9, 14) >>> y = datetime.datetime(2004, 9, 14, 6, 43, 15) >>> print x == y True How can these two objects be considered equal? Is there a *general* way to test for date != datetime as well as 4.5 != 4.6?

I have two date fields, start_date and end_date. I'd like to subtract the two dates, and come up with a number (the number of difference between the two dates). What function is there to do this? I haven't been able to find anything in BOL.

Hi there, I'm surely not the first one to have this problem. But searching the group didn't yield any results, so here goes: When storing DateTime values in an SQL Database (using a 'datetime' field), the value returned by a subsequent query never exactly matches the DateTime values inserted (I guess the DateTime struct has a different precision then what is acutally saved to the DB), thus the following always fails:

I'm trying to compare a date stored in a database with today's date using an If statement, but it's not returning true. Example, value in database is 11/5/2003 with today being 11/6/2003.

Hi all, I was wondering if someone could help me out with a question about PHP Dates. I would like to pass a date to PHP via a query string, using ISO 8601 formatting ("2008-09-15T00:00:00Z"). I then would like to be able to manipulate the date in PHP, and do things like printing out the hour, adding seconds, etc. So far the best I've come up with is use PHP's "strptime" function to get an array of the date components: $ts =...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
