Date literals not working in batch apex?

SOQL:

[SELECT Id,Name FROM Account WHERE createddate=THIS_MONTH]

This query is working fine when it is called from button, but it is unable to filter according to the created date when it is invoked from a batch apex.

Answer

Based on the test below, the THIS_MONTH date literal does work in batch Apex.

I took your code (that I presume is a contrived example) and added debug log output:

global class  RunBatch implements Database.Batchable<sObject> {
    global Database.QueryLocator start(Database.BatchableContext BC){
        string query='select id from Account';
        return Database.getQueryLocator(query);
    }
    global void execute(Database.BatchableContext BC, List<sObject> scope){
        list<id> accIds=new list<id>();
        for(sObject s : scope){
            Account acc=(Account)s;
            accIds.add(acc.id);
        }
        list<Account> accList=[select id,name FROM Account
                WHERE createddate=THIS_MONTH AND id IN : accIds];
        System.debug('list=' + accList);
    }
    global void finish(Database.BatchableContext BC) {
    }
}

and ran it from the Developer Console:

Database.executeBatch(new RunBatch(), 10);

and got the expected output (of 2 Accounts I just created):

list=(Account:{Name=New Account, Id=001i000000wF4mPAAS},
Account:{Name=New Account 2, Id=001i000000wF4o6AAC})
