SOQL Date Formats

Coming from an SQL background, I’ve always had issues with SOQL’s date format. So, today, I’m going to share with you some tips on how to utilize SOQL Date queries, specifically using Built in Date Functions:

Before we dig in too deep though, we must know the syntax for Date in



In, there are two ways of querying Date:

#1 Specify the date in the query

The following query will return all Id’s for all the leads that were created on 2012-12-12 : Select ID, Date from Lead where Date= dateValue (2012-12-12)

#2 Query with a Built in Function

For example, the following query will return all Id’s for the Lead that were created yesterday: Select Id, Date from Lead where Date= YESTERDAY

I hope this helps!
