This is an alternative for "SQL Get the last date of the month"


In this tip and trick, I am going to write about how to get the last day of a particular month of passed date?


We can get the last day of a month by several manipulations and use of built in date functions of SQL Server.

Using the Code

Here, I have declared @InputDate DateTime variable to pass date, then I have set @InputDate manually. You can pass it from codebehind, then I have created a small snippet for retrieving the last day of passed date.

declare @InputDate datetime
set @InputDate='06/26/2014' --MM/DD/YYYY Format
DATEADD(mm,1,@InputDate)),101) as ReturnedDate 

Here I have Convert date in MM/DD/YYYY format using:


Here, 101 return date in MM/DD/YYYY format. You can convert it in different format. For more information, you can take a look at this article:

We can create function to return last date of a month in this way:

 CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[func_LastDate](@Date DATETIME)
returns nvarchar(100)
    DECLARE @ReturnedDate nvarchar(100)
    select @ReturnedDate=CONVERT(VARCHAR(25),DATEADD(dd,-(DAY(DATEADD(mm,1,@Date))),DATEADD(mm,1,@Date)),103)

    return @ReturnedDate


We can call this function in this way:

 declare @Date varchar(100)
select @Date=  [dbo].[func_LastDate] (getdate())
print @Date
