Default T-SQL Code to get last 6 months

Hi there,

I am trying to get the last 6 months of data from a table in SQL Server 2005. Does any body out there know how to write this code to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance,

The DATEADD function allows you to compute a date that is 6 months ago:
    DATEADD(m, -6, current_timestamp)
use this to compare your date column:
    SELECT *
      FROM yourtable
     WHERE yourdatecolumn > DATEADD(m, -6, current_timestamp);
