Databases Reporting with SQL Date and Time Functions Calculating Dates

What type system is this supposed to be ran on?

I’ve tried currdate(), curdate(), adddate(), subdate(), and always get a message that there is something is wrong with my statement or that I got it wrong because it’s expecting 14 as the answer (although I have no idea what it’s getting since there isn’t a result set).

Hi Todd

I think based on the videos here you need to do this:

SELECT COUNT(*) AS ordered_yesterday_and_shipped FROM orders WHERE ordered_on = DATE("now", "-1 day") AND status = "shipped";
