SOQL : Date - n days

Hello there,
I have a requirement where I need to write a where clause which needs to set the date value to '<Date>'-10 days .

For e.g: I want to query something like this:

Select Sample_Object__r.Ship_Date__c,Sample_Object__r.Transaction_Number__c,c.Quantity__c,c.Lot_Number__c from  

spl_sample_object_items__c c where   Sample_Object__r.Ship_Date__c>= 2008-04-01 - (10) and Sample_Object__r.Ship_Date__c <= 2008-10-18 + (10)

Any function available in SOQL or do I need to write a logic for this on the client side . Any hints would be truly appreciated !

Where are those dates coming from? It seems strange they are hardcoded.

You can add and days to dates using Date methods. I haven't tried it but I'm guess you can just add negative days to subtract.

See page 139:

Thanks for the respons TehNrd. I use flex as the client, so I cannot use this Apex date method. The dates are hardcoded because it is just a runtime query.

Pls let me know if you have any idea on how to do this in Flex if we cannot do this stuff in SOQL directly.

Unfortunately I'm not to familiar with Flex but I know that SOQL will not like this syntax:

Sample_Object__r.Ship_Date__c>= 2008-04-01 - (10)

I think you will need to subtract 10 days from the date in Flex before you pass it to the SOQL call.
