Help with returning records based on date using now() or curdate()

Help with returning records based on date using now() or curdate()

Hopefully this is a quick one, but I am getting some odd results trying to return records where a date field is between the current date and 7 days from the current date.

I have tried using:

WHERE trade_users.Follow_up_date >= (CURDATE() - INTERVAL 7 DAY)


WHERE trade_users.Follow_up_date >= NOW() - INTERVAL 7 DAY

Playing around with it, its doing something - I tried changing the range til I spotted it do something different.

So for example:

WHERE trade_users.Follow_up_date >= (CURDATE() - INTERVAL 70 DAY)

Returns records from 9 May 2017 to 12 November 2017, which is odd as it covers more than 70 days, with dates in both the past and the future.

If I just have WHERE trade_users.Follow_up_date >= NOW() it seems OK, ie returns the five records with a follow up date in the future.

Have attached the page below.

Thank you.

I might have it working with:

WHERE trade_users.Follow_up_date >= NOW()
AND trade_users.Follow_up_date < DATE_ADD(NOW(), INTERVAL + 7 DAY)

Does that look right?

Yes I think that would work.
