SQL query to select dates between two dates


Question

I have a start_date and end_date. I want to get the list of dates in between these two dates. Can anyone help me pointing the mistake in my query.

select Date,TotalAllowance 
from Calculation 
where EmployeeId=1
  and Date between 2011/02/25 and 2011/02/27

Here Date is a datetime variable.

Accepted Answer

you should put those two dates between single quotes like..

select Date, TotalAllowance from Calculation where EmployeeId = 1
             and Date between '2011/02/25' and '2011/02/27'

or can use

select Date, TotalAllowance from Calculation where EmployeeId = 1
             and Date >= '2011/02/25' and Date <= '2011/02/27'

keep in mind that the first date is inclusive, but the second is exclusive, as it effectively is '2011/02/27 00:00:00'

Since a datetime without a specified time segment will have a value of date 00:00:00.000, if you want to be sure you get all the dates in your range, you must either supply the time for your ending date or increase your ending date and use <.

select Date,TotalAllowance from Calculation where EmployeeId=1 
and Date between '2011/02/25' and '2011/02/27 23:59:59.999'

OR

select Date,TotalAllowance from Calculation where EmployeeId=1 
and Date >= '2011/02/25' and Date < '2011/02/28'

OR

select Date,TotalAllowance from Calculation where EmployeeId=1 
and Date >= '2011/02/25' and Date <= '2011/02/27 23:59:59.999'

DO NOT use the following, as it could return some records from 2011/02/28 if their times are 00:00:00.000.

select Date,TotalAllowance from Calculation where EmployeeId=1 
and Date between '2011/02/25' and '2011/02/28'
2014/02/27

Try this:

select Date,TotalAllowance from Calculation where EmployeeId=1
             and [Date] between '2011/02/25' and '2011/02/27'

The date values need to be typed as strings.

To ensure future-proofing your query for SQL Server 2008 and higher, Date should be escaped because it's a reserved word in later versions.

Bear in mind that the dates without times take midnight as their defaults, so you may not have the correct value there.

2011/02/26

select * from table_name where col_Date between '2011/02/25' 
AND DATEADD(s,-1,DATEADD(d,1,'2011/02/27'))

Here, first add a day to the current endDate, it will be 2011-02-28 00:00:00, then you subtract one second to make the end date 2011-02-27 23:59:59. By doing this, you can get all the dates between the given intervals.

output:
2011/02/25
2011/02/26
2011/02/27
2015/09/21

select * from test 
     where CAST(AddTime as datetime) between '2013/4/4' and '2014/4/4'

-- if data type is different

2013/04/05

This query stands good for fetching the values between current date and its next 3 dates

SELECT * FROM tableName  WHERE columName 
BETWEEN CURDATE() AND DATE_ADD(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 3 DAY)

This will eventually add extra 3 days of buffer to the current date.
