Pivot In Values with dates?

At the end of my sql, I am using the following code. Is there any way of replacing the fixed strings [2011/07/14], [2011/07/16], etc, to GetDate() value?

PIVOT 
    (
       count([AppointmentsBooked])
       FOR [date] IN ([2011/07/14], [2011/07/16], [2011/07/17],[2011/07/18],[2011/07/21])
    ) as pivottable

Can you try to use BETWEEN and DATEADD in following manner:

DECLARE @dates TABLE(value DateTime)

INSERT INTO @dates VALUES
(GETDATE()),
('2011/07/9'),
('2011/07/17'), 
('2011/07/18'), 
('2011/07/21')

SELECT value FROM @dates
WHERE value BETWEEN GETDATE() AND DATEADD(day, 5, GETDATE())

You can create a string of all dates which is comma seperated with '[' and ']' before and after each date. assign this string to a string variable (@dates) and use the string spit method to split all dates inside the pivot query.


this question was posted about a year ago. i don't care. i have some code that might be exactly what the OP wanted.... i'm sure he'll never come back and chose an answer but still.... all i want to do is count the records by month with a pivot for a few tables and ultimately compare the number of records for each month for each table. however... in this code there is only one table (rt_taco_15m) but that doesn't matter. i just haven't written the rest to completely fit my needs. but i think it fits the needs of the OP or at least gets him on a good start.... if he truly has been waiting a year on this problem. lol.
