All of the datetime values for "yesterday" actually exist as a range of
datetime values between midnight that morning (inclusive) and midnight
the next morning (not part of the search). So your WHERE clause needs to
... WHERE dtcolumn >= '2011-01-21 00:00:00' and dtcolumn < '2011-01-22
This pattern has the added advantage of not eliminating the possibility
of using an INDEX on the dtcolumn column by wrapping it inside a function.
