Sort by date

Question:
In a project tracking database, one of the columns in a table contains the date in this format: MM/DD/YY. I would like to be able to see a listing of projects that are overdue. Is it possible to query the table so that the SQL statement returns only records with dates before the current date? How do I retrieve today's date?

Answer:
I'll assume that the field you are talking about is defined as a date. (If not, you will have to use either the convert function or some of the string functions with the convert to have it treated as a date). You could then simply say:

 
select * from projects
where 
projdate < getdate() 

—getdate returns today's date
