Find last day of month 30 or 31 days

Recommended Posts



just wondering if this can be done.

I'm querying an SQL database to get monthly figures.

This is going to be hard to explain... sorry if it's not clear!

Here's some simplified code to give you some idea.

$CurrentMonthLastYearDateBegin = @YEAR - 1 & "-" & @MON & "-" & "01"

$CurrentMonthLastYearDateEnd_Full = @YEAR - 1 & "-" & @MON & "-" & "30"

SELECT TOTAL FROM TABLE WHERE DATE >= $CurrentMonthDateBegin AND DATE <= $CurrentMonthDateEnd_Full

I can't set this:

$CurrentMonthLastYearDateEnd_Full = @YEAR - 1 & "-" & @MON & "-" & "30"

to 31 because if it's a 30 day month the SQL returns an error:

The conversion of a varchar data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range value.

So i need a variable that is equal to the amount of days in the current month.

Appreciate any help.

Perhaps the _DateDaysInMonth function might help? :graduated:
