select julian day from datetime field

I am trying to build a SELECT query that allows the user to pull a specific day from a table of data. Currently, I have a year, day, and time field, so the user can SELECT * from TABLE where year = 2006 AND day = 245. I'm dropping these three fields in exchange for one datetime field (with the format yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm). Now when I select day(datetime) = 245 no records are found because I suspect that the days are being counted as 1 - 28, 30, and 31. Is there a simple way around this like a julian day function that is included in the SELECT statement?
