    Unanswered: Sql Date question

    Hello everyone Im horrible at querying anything related to a date. I need a bit of help. I am inserting a schedule into the database. I later want to pull the data that is older than the current time of the query. what I have below is the previous attempt.

    s.schedule_time <= getdate()

    Thanks for your help.

    I can't see anything wrong with what you've posted so far, but I'm having to assume an awful lot. Maybe someone else can help with what you've posted so far, but I'd need to see more (probably all) of your code to help you.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    This is the query but I

    This is the full query it doesnt seem to be working as desired ive broken down each clause to confirm they are correct and they are.

    Thanks for any suggestions

    select s.schedule_id, c.Contact_name, contact_number, g.group_id, g.Group_name, s.Schedule, m.message, m.message_id
                from Contacts as c with (nolock), Messages as m with (nolock), Schedule as s with (nolock), Groups as g with (nolock)
                where c.group_id = g.group_id and
                s.group_id = g.group_id and
                s.message_id = m.message_id and
                job_complete is NULL and
                s.schedule <= getdate()
