I have a data structure like this:

ShipId      StartDate      EndDate
------------------------------------
Ship1    SDate1         SDate2
Ship1    SDate3         SDate4
Ship1    SDate5         SDate6
Ship2    SDate7         Sdate8
Ship2    SDate9         SDate10
......

I need to create a sql script to find out if any ship got Overlaped ship schedule. For example, if SDate1..SDate2 Overlap with SDate5..SDate6, the script should return the Shipid (Ship1 in this case) and Overlapped rows (Row1 and Row3 in this case)

Please Help!

--do you have another record thats a unique id field? This code assumes there is - comment below

select t1.shipid, t1.startdate, t1.enddate, t2.startdate, t2.enddate
from shiptable t1
join shiptable t2 on t1.shipid = t2.shipid and (t2.startdate between t1.startdate and t1.enddate or t2.enddate between t1.startdate and t1.enddate)
and t1.id <> t2.id ---- use this if there is an id field - if there isnt, you'll need to change this so that you dont match the record to itself (t1.start and end dates not exactly the same as t2.start and end dates)
